What is a really good OS for developers. I do web development and AI so Linux makes perfect sense, but I also use visual studio for C#. What OS should I use?

<p>The OS that you are comfortable with! For me, Windows is a pen in the ass (in 2018) and I didn't use it, but I mostly hate also the MS language. On the other hand, I love OSX for mobile development, because you can have all your env in one place.</p><p>and I love Linux for server-side development, I work on c-lightning and bitcoin core, and Linux is fantastic.</p><p><br></p><p>As conclusion? The conclusion here is it takes the OS that you considered the best and share also your feedback.</p><p><br></p><p>P.S: If you develop C# or MS languages, you will love window :)</p><p><br></p><p>Good luck!</p>

<p>It depends on the language you want to develop, if you want to develop for iOS, macOS is better and if you want to develop in C #, Windows is better.</p>

<p>Honestly, I don't think the OS matters much as long as it supports the programming language/compiler/script/etc.</p><p><br></p><p>I would say Linux but just because I use it. The most important, is that your code is well documented, well structured and as efficient as possible. This is what matters the most. If you do this, it doesn't matter if you code on Windows, macOS or Linux.</p>

<p>You can use mono to develop with C# in Linux.</p><p><br></p><p>You can run a virtual machine on Windows to run Linux on it.</p><p><br></p><p>You can use <a href="https://code.visualstudio.com/Docs/languages/csharp" target="_blank">Visual Studio Code</a> in Windows, Linux, and MacOS to develop in C#</p><p><br></p><p>For AI/ML/DL in general I would say Linux is probably the best OS.</p>
