The primary issue I've seen with WSL is that several corporate environments I've been in don't allow for the necessary features needed for WSL to be installed.

For me personally, It's Linux. I prefer the way Linux works, distros like Manjaro and Pop!_OS have made it much easier for general users to get into it (especially since Pop!_OS is maintained by an OEM). Additionally, with tools like Lutris, DXVK, D9VK, and Steam Play/Proton playing games on Linux is largely easier than Mac OS and covers a good 90ish% of my games.
