I'm using Windows 10 on my HP laptop with Amd A12 processor and only 4 GB ram.
I want to know which OS you guys use for developer work and which will be the most stable for me. I've read duscussions like arch linux will have many packages that needs to be updated so I don't want that tiresome work everyday
I am wishing to start my dev work on linux because on Windows, VSCode with Chrome and discord lags a lot at times of switching between them.
So please suggest share your thoughts so that i download the OS tomorrow and make it bootable and start working as soon as possible. Thanks in advance
EDIT: Also just yesterday night I booted with AntergOS it didn't let me dual boot saying it needs a GPT partition. Then I tried Solus OS and it didn't even recognize itself on the disk. so then I made Fedora bootable and installed it but just after that since I had to turn on the Legacy support on, my Windows 10 disappeared from the grub or boot options.
So then I again live boot with the pendrive to check whether my Windows drives are there on the disk or not. Then I used my Windows Recovery disk and it installed it in a span of 4 hours so now I'm typing to you this on my Microsft Edge Browser (while chrome downloads in background).
I think my dream of starting the development on Linux systems will be shattered so much.
I read articles/blog regarding solving this online but windows needs UEFI method to boot and nothing else.
