You can make virtuality environment of Linux on Windows by using Docker・VirutalBox...
But front-end code like html・css・javasciprt execute on browser, so it doesn't matter which OS you use.

Hope I understood your question correctly, and it helps you.

You understood correctly 👍🏻 my teacher confirmed that my OS didn't matter when it came to front-end development. He said that Windows might have been recommended for the backend course.

So now my next question is what distro are front-end people using? I want to get in to a nice workflow and using Windows I just can't seem to find a good flow.
We are for the time using atom as an IDE, Chrome as browser, and github/gitbash.

"distro", you mean distro of Linux? if so, also it doesn't matter what kinda distro you gotta use.
For frontend developper, important thing is which browser use, cuz depend on it, sometimes css,js doesnt work (specially IE)

text editor : I use intellij because I use at work
browser : chrome, firefox, opera, edge, IE

Yeah I was wondering if there was a distro that was preferred due to program availability. And also what desktop environment that might enhance my workflow. But I guess I just gonna have to try for my self 😁
