Windows Subsystem for Linux, the terminal runs tests much faster for me than powershell. So I've been using its bash shell primarily lately.

Something I use on my Chromebook is Code-server. It's VS Code, but not in a full electron app. You start it as a node server, and access the frontend as a url in Chrome - which you can save as an app-shortcut. The UI is so much faster running in Chrome than running the whole Electron app via Crostini. Still run the node part in Crostini though
