Is WSL enough to Switch

So I’m not expecting people to say no because of Windows privacy concerns. I’m looking for peoples opinion if WSL is at a point that you switch from Linux or Mac to development fully in WSL?

I am seriously considering it.

Did you find this post useful? Show some love!

I am developing a pretty big project using eclipse-pydev under wsl and VcXsrv and works just fine.

Only some minor problems like:
Gedit does not automatically resize to screen.
To archieve full hdd performance must stop antivirus.

I am working on my Node side project on WSL for over 2 months and haven't hit any issues.
I think it is worth to test it.

If DEV were an acronym, what would it stand for?
