a.k.a don’t fear the terminal
As a (mainly) web developer, I develop software that is mostly running on Linux - whether it’s a virtual machine in the cloud, a docker container, or my NAS under the staircase. So - for me - using any other operating system for development would be an extra hindrance.
To be honest, I like the customisability and freedom that only a Linux distribution can provide, I’m on Linux for more than 20 years, and happy with it. But if you are new, I try to give you a quick overview, why the terminal could be a useful tool.
