This may seem controversial, but I like Ubuntu because it WORKS. I started learning dev on Win10, but the buffering and loading drove me insane. I thought my computer may be slower, so I tried out Ubuntu and everything worked quickly. Yes, there is a learning curve. Yes, you have to be willing to learn more about what you're doing. But the effort has paid off, esp when I started learning/working with servers.
After I got enough bills paid to finally buy a new computer, I started working windows again, as surely my new machine would handle it with ease...
And it still freezes all the time...
Also, "wsl is an abomination" so something someone said to me a while back, and I am inclined to agree.
