Discussion on: Is linux good enough for everyday programming?

I've been 100% Linux since at least 2010. I'm more productive when I have a better CLI experience and more available system memory. I also spend way less on hardware as it takes much longer for me to feel like I need an upgrade. In fact my last upgrade was only to get portability from a desktop to a laptop. My current machine is actually slower and it's still a beast with KDE Neon. I have a 9360 XPS 13 Developer Edition with an i7 and 16GB RAM.
