Yes, every dev should at least try Linux, you can learn how things works by opening the hood of your car.

  • You can play with it using a Live USB stick, it doesn't affect your current computer OS
  • you can install Linux after Windows and you can have dual boot, in case of emergency you have a fallback

At work I use MacOS and I'm very happy with it, but at home I try every couple of years to make a full dev env in Windows, this year it failed the test again. I kept getting errors, find edge cases and issues, after 4 days of google/fix & repeat I quit, I made a VM and installed Ubuntu + all the goodies inside it, it worked from the first run.
