re: Is linux good enough for everyday programming? VIEW POST


If we talk about "everyday programming" then I'd say Linux only falls short if you really need commercial software like Photoshop, or Microsoft/Windows specific software like MS Office, Visual Studio or .NET ... if you only use open source software like Node, PHP, VSCode, Java and so on then I'd say Linux is more than adequate.

If you need (for instance) game support then you're better off with Windows ... and if you're a graphics design wizard then a Mac might be better ... but the topic of the post is "Is Linux good enough for everyday programming" and then I'd answer that with a resounding "yes".
