Definitely go linux, its just so much better for development. Its also very fast and light compared to windows and the flexibility is insane. steam does work on linux, game support is lacking but getting there.

I don't game but I can imagine it's not great on linux. There can be driver issues in new hardware, but my laptop is a 2016 model so I am good there. All my dev tools work great, web browser support is fantastic, zoom, MS teams, ect. all work without issue, and most unsupported apps have solid Linux alternatives. So, I don't miss a thing.
