Once you go Linux you don't go back.
I play games so, Linux isn't an option... and visual studio. I have not tried visual studio code which is supported on linux, but i believe it has a lot less features. So, yeah... i am stuck with Windows, but i gotta work with linux from time to time. I could VM windows, but there is performance loss, and id rather vm the linux box because i only need the linux stuff for specific things where performance isnt a problem. I guess the other reason why i dont use linux anymore is that i am tired of figuring out how to get the apps to compile. I can install something with a single click or a single command line... but if that fails, its 4 hours of trying to figure out how to get it to compile... it gets easier, but im kinda at a point in life where thats not fun anymore.
Windows will never have the memory efficiency as Linux does due to less refined code, but also because they are packaged towards different audiences. BUT drivers are a different story. If 90% of the companies product is used on Windows, i can guarantee you that driver is more tested and potentially more optimized on windows than it is on other Linux distros.
I would like to see these tests on other Windows 10 distros. Like, Windows 10 IOT, Win Server 2019. Systems designed to have less of the bloatware.... i swear to god, win server 2019 better not have cortana installed by default.
