Reasons to use Linux
Linux has a better environment for programming. It can smoothly execute software like PyCharm, Rider and Android Studio. Linux has a huge source of tools to make a specific task easier. Not only
aircrack-ng there are many other CLI based tools, that gonna help you. And one thing,
docker also executes awesomely in Linux.
Reasons not to use Linux
Linux has a growing software for video editing which might not fulfill all our requirements. Idiots in the Linux community quarrels over distro i.e. "my distro is better", instead of coding a nice piece of software or staying silent. Image editing and other stuff can be tedious for you. I don't see any point in using Wine, wine just decrease the GUI appearance of the app.
Linux has Krita and Gimp for photo editing, KdelLive for video editing but they may not fulfill all the requirements. Specially, KdelLive can't be used as fully-fledged video editing software like Wondershare Filmora.
Why I am in Linux based OS?
I use Ubuntu, Ubuntu is super awesome. Fool people quarrel over distros but that's not what smart linux users do.
I am a developer, and a memer as well. My meming ablities won't die on Ubuntu. I use two webapp for photo editing, that's Photopea and Canva.
Also, if you wanna be a developer and do some basic security stuff come to Linux and use Linux based OS.
Typical Linux Distro arguments:
Most of the Linux distro arguments are about the desktop environments. You can literally install any desktop environment in any linux based OS you're using. So, let's not quarrel over Linux Distro (aka: Desktop Environment).
Let's contribute on making software and games for Linux. Let's do it.

Just an idea: Maybe don't go around calling people idiots because they refuse to write the software you need for free, and just do it yourself if you think it's that easy.
Oh but it gets worse:
It's not that they haven't written those programs already; they just haven't done so in a way that you like it. So they're idiots for not writing the software exactly the way you want it.
But considering how entitled you're acting, I'm sure your own contributions to FOSS are quite amaz- oh, never mind, your github profile is literally empty. Oh well.
Kinda agree with you, but I am poking those who quarrels over "My distro is better than yours". bishwas-py is my github profile sir.
You have a different profile linked in your dev account
Sorry for that, lemme fix it. Actually this is my github educational pack (.edu) college account.
So far I have only been trying with Live-CD to get accustomed to Linux, also using online tools for trying Linux commands. But these all were very slow, in addition to my laptop which has low specification : 2GB ram. :)
With this laptop, I can only use Sublime Text for development, although I have also installed VSCode, Intellij IDEA and Android Studio :) :)
What scenario do you recommend for installing Linux, esp for low budget ?
I cannot continue on learning Python + Django using Apache on Windows, because last time I tried to do, it failed on installing mod_wsgi.
But it is not the only reason; I think it's time for me to learn, try, use Linux in more serious way. Last time I used Linux is when I had to config Nginx in the server to handle cache problem in my web application using SSH from my Windows pc.
I would never ever suggest dual boot, if you had 32 GB of RAM, I would still suggest you not to use dual boot. For your 2 GB ram, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or Windows 7 would be great.
Do not install windows 10, your specification can't handle it.
Thanks for the reply and suggestion. As for the distro, I actually want to install CentOS. I have read about it as well as other distros. At the last company I worked, the application was deployed on VPS that used CentOS.
Also, I don't think you need to install apache specifically to run django. Just write codes on django, and do
python manage.py runserver
I know that python-Django has that command for running its own web server. But, because I have already had Apache which is regularly used for running PHP code, I wanted to use Apache for serving python + Django too.
Ohh, you wanna host it with Apache on your VPS or what?
Not on VPS, but on my local computer for the purpose of learning Python + Django. But it is not my priority now, because I have a new interest in using Go aka Golang as the backend language. Node.Js, Java (with Spring or JEE) are still in my list too. C# and .Net, although very powerful, are massive tech that I don't have time to learn.
i was a windows user for 11 years, recently switched to Linux Mint..
my experience was mixed.
anywho, i came back into loving arms of windows in about two months into my Linux journey, do i regret it, No.
would i install Linux again, No.
do i feel line one os is superior than other, No.
Protection of Krita: one of the best hand drawing application, I used many years for create some digital arts. No the best but good for example: idea.stemhungary.com/ (pwa program for mobil devices, but work in modern browser - hungarian languages) , but I used Krita windows version few years ago. My solution for linux - like os is macOS, because terminal work with linux command and iterm2 is really fine for day bay day works, plus you can work with best photo editing programs too. Also easy ssh to VPN machine.
Krita is an amazing piece of software. It may not do everything (yet), but even just the UI is a massive leap forward from typical linux software from 10 years ago: it's much more aware of the typical user and totally lacks this slight sense of elitism that many other linux programs have ("here at XYZ, we do things differently")
I got a bit confused while using it, cause I guess Krita is more for vector design and digital painting, but I am more into image editing and memeing. What do you think Is krita good for beginners?
Krita is great for pixel graphic, worst for vector and terrible for text. Total good for beginers.
Haha, that's awesome. What do you think, can I use krita to design characters for my game?? I also do Unity gameDev sometime....
Of course Krita is great for character design, also shine when you would like draw endless texture much much easier than PS.
I also switched to linux a few months ago, mainly because windows was lagging a lot on my low end pc. Linux runs far far better than windows on my PC. After switching i realized how good linux is.
I initially installed ubuntu but then I installed the KDE desktop environment. I just love the fact that I can customize everything in it.
I am never switching back to Windows ever again.
And regarding the app support, most apps I use are either available on Linux natively or have some awesome alternatives or have a web app.
Ha Ha, me too.
All the joy, none of the license fees. SSH to your server like a boss.
Ubuntu for a daily driver, Arch for messing around and digging deeper into Linux.
VSCode on Ubuntu FTW.
Are you using Debian or what as you default OS?
