Discussion on: Switch to Linux?

The main reason for me is supporting open source and having built in Bash support. Course, with WSL2, GitBash, and everything else... There's not much difference. And since I have to use VS for work, I'm not using linux :(

It is one of my doubts, if it is so worth the change... or is it better to continue with Windows and work with WSL. Thanks, Winston!

Ability to run docker natively was deciding factor for me. Very often I find myself in situation where I am running multiple containers at the same time which I was also able to achieve with WSL2 on windows, but it kind of made windows sluggish. I have switched to Linux mint on my laptop which I primarily use for development.
