Discussion on: About Windows for devs

I actually prefer Windows over Linux for development. IDEs and text editors are mostly cross-platform, any popular programming language is supported, and most of the times you can get around everything you would do with bash with some GUI and get the same results.
But the most annoying thing to me about Linux vs Windows is installing things. I really appreciate clicking "continue" a couple times to install Docker on windows than copying and pasting several lines on the terminal form the official site to get docker running, not to mention when you actually have only a source file in Linux.
