while developing is nice (git commands, and npm commands run extremelly fast),
too many things suck. Some apps run slower than on windows (chrome, spotify). Often freezes, lags.
Some apps are non-existent - TogglTrack, Excel (with VBA), Skype for business...
After 2 monhts, had to return back to windows :(
just wasted a lot of type setting up everything...

I used LinuxMint on one PC, and Ubuntu Budgie on another. Gnome was ugly and laggy.
