I've grew up on Windows and during my undergrad, I've found that linux and Unix are both power. From a sys admin approach linux is much easier for developing anything. Unlike Windows you have some restrictions to certain packages. Linux is the way to go and I've used both linux and Unix and never touched Windows. Though, windows is moving more to support linux and there's even a way to make linux look like Windows. reddit.com/r/unixporn/ is a great first step. I've change my dev to linux and Unix and I've nevered looked bad. (Windows) let's update to v2 (user) ok..... Waits ten hours...... Update is spinning.... (Windows) ok never mind, let's roll back till we fix the bug.
Ok I'm done. Anyways which linux flavors you used, you'll never look back

best way to test which Linux flavor you like is by using virtual box or VMware
