Discussion on: Should I use Linux?

Depends on the kind of programming you're doing.

Me, I do game development, and Unity doesn't support Linux. I'd have to do it inside a VM, or use some other workaround. I'd also need to do the same for Photoshop.

At that point, might as well just not use it, especially when its perks -- good access to various packages -- are wasted on me.

Thanks for your input. I don't plan to switch to Linux completely, I just want to do it inside a VM. I do mostly full-stack/ML development and from my knowledge, it's all available on Linux!
