Mostly the whole Python, compile build stuff is less buggy on Linux than Windows. Then there are Windows paths that can cause issues.
I do absolutely agree that WSL adds complexity. If that complexity is worth it, I can’t say.
If you don’t have any issues. Then I wouldn’t change to WSL.
I totally get Python on WSL, I wouldn't do that on Windows without a gun to my head. I was mainly interested in what made JS/TS development better in WSL. If your opinion has changed, what changed it?
Thanks for replying to this old-ish thread!
My opinion hasn't really settled. What pushed me into the anti WSL direction was when I tried to get React Native running in WSL with an Android simulator on Windows. That was just painful to the point where I fetched my Linux laptop and plugged that in instead.
For JS/TS development I'd pick:
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
