I would say that OS isn't really an issue, to be honest. I've noticed windows for game dev, MacOS for web dev, and Linux for servers. Because I do web dev, the majority my dev time as been on a mac.

I'd say that in reality the only thing that has really been consistent is - if you're going to deploy to a server, get somewhat comfortable with Linux and docker. Everything else you can just adapt to. Most places will let you choose your work station.

I really wouldn't worry about OS-specific dev, though. I have never seen that be an issue.
