Ubuntu Linux with Gnome!
I was on Windows but I changed to Linux because my windows installation got corrupted.

I've been pleasantly surprised by how much more stable it is and how much better the general development experience is.

Installed Ubuntu Budgie this week and it's pretty slick. :) You should give Budgie a try if you haven't!

But yeah Ubuntu has come a long way in usability since 12 or 14.

I'll definitely check it out! Thanks for the tip.

I've used Linux a little with raspberry pis and servers but it's new to me as a desktop environment and I don't see myself going back...

I mean if you're not using Windows for gaming or things like photoshop all the time there's not too much of a point unless your development targets Windows for whatever reason. I'm linux at home like 98% of the time. :D

Even for gaming I've found most things run pretty well! Steam for Linux & Proton seems to run almost everything I throw at it! I do still have my laptop dual-booted with windows 10; I occasionally have to build an electron app targeted for windows.

I haven't tried steam with proton yet. Maybe sometime next week! Gotta finish setting up the install I did on Monday! May actually re-reinstall it as I need to format all my disks and I'm not 100% sure if I can do that with the current partition on it. :P

I build Electron apps targeted for Windows on Fedora with wine installed. You may not need to dual boot, if that's all you go into Windows for.
