re: Need Advice: What OS should I use with the new laptop I am planning to purchase? VIEW POST


It depends:

First on what tech stack you will be using, if depends on Windows only tools is better stay on it.

Second, if you can't waste a lot of time learning a new environment, stay on what you already familiar.

Third, if you have a lot of time and aren't afraid of breaking stuff you can choose rolling release distros, Manjaro or even Arch, if not try Ubuntu, Fedora or Suse. Those distros have a lot of packages an answers online to help you with most of issues you will encounter.

About WSL 2 i tried and its a great progress from WSL 1, great if you like or have to use Windows, but isn't a linux replacement.
