Since the introduction of docker for windows, Windows has been a pleasant experience for all kinds of development work

As for shell environment, if one is comfortable with bash, there has always been git bash for windows so people coming from other os environment feel at ease.

I have done my fair share of dual booting between Linux and windows, removing windows completely and sticking with Linux but since docker for windows was released, there was no point anymore.

With the release of wsl, things just keep getting closer to a full blown Unix environment. I rarely use it and just stick with docker because its so cool.
