Well, yeah, if you are filthy rich and can afford a filthy powerful machine, then you can even use a virtualized MacOS xD.
Jokes apart, you are right, but in my case I have to do very different types of work on my machine: python development, nodejs, frontend, spin up virtual machines, use containers, etc, so I always felt I need as many resources as possible from my laptop. For instance, I think disk usage is an issue with windows. I'm developing a xamarin app, and visualstudio+xamarin take gigas and gigas of disk space (it's not the OS, though, maybe I am a little OT :). Ever felt this way?
