>The best of windows is linux (WSL)
>The best of linux is windows (wine)

When did you conclude that the OS you use does not matter?

However, the superior setup probably is windows host (HyperV has GPU partitioning and Windows has overall better graphical stack) paired with linux VM(s) (on headless ssh).

    windows gets worse performance than linux
    linux-on-windows gets worse performance than windows-on-linux

      Depends on what perfomance you are measuring. However linux on windows ensures the best compability.

    Wine is only useful if you're a gaymer

      Yeah, but similarly, I wouldn't like to run two whole systems to have a sane development enviroment. I still fallback to windows since everything works. (I'm OP)

      I don't need any of this software.

      Furthermore who needs all of it? Like you're some office monkey who doesn't work in IT who spends all day typing shit in Microsoft Word yet you also need Photoslop because you handle all graphic design duties in your job too? This argument is moronic as frick in most cases. I'll never need any of that proprietary bloat and I earn my living without it.

      who the frick uses that? I thought it was almost imopssible to pirate and too expensive for single users

    WSL2 almost makes Windows 10+ a viable UNIX like OS but it has big caveats
    >access from inside Linux to the native windows filesystem through the 9p protocol is fricking dog slow
    >access from Windows userspace to the WSL2 filesystem is fricking dog slow
    >WSL2 filesystem is a big ass single file image inside your home directory
    >Windows doesn't have a way to reclaim the space from the WSL2 filesystem image, it just grows, if you create a 15gb file in WSL2 Linux and then you delete it these 15GB will never be reclaimed
    >there is no indication of the wasted space
    >there are only some half assed unofficial recipes in a GitHub issue on how to reclaim the space and no guarantee that they will keep working
    >the bug may be already 5 years old
    Good try from Microsoft but Mac is better UNIX and I think it's better to have a dedicated Linux machine instead of WSL2.

    Yes, it all sucks.

      Of course a real machine is superior to a virtual one.

      I also advise to not use WSL but using traditional VMs. I use picrel with HyperV as hypervisor.

        if you're gonna use a "real" VM why not just use linux as the host OS
        haha KVM go brrr

          GPU passthrough is less powerful than GPU partiioning.

            Wait, how the hell do you guys get to have GPU passthrough or GPU partitioning in a Linux VM on a Windows host ???

            That is not what I said. good luck having your gpu usable in multiple OSes.

            You may use it for hobby reasons. I don't relate totally with that anon, but I already had to use software for college that isn't available for linux like LabView and MultiSim.

            I don't need any of this software.

            I think that is fine. If linux works for you, keep using it. But things like glibc instability and how gimped wayland is also makes linux desktop worse than it could have been.

      That's a touch concerning. Wish I knew that before using it.

    Dualboot chads just keep winning

      That was my part setup. Dualbooting is annoying since you can keep the state of the OSes. Now that I've a good amount of RAM, I don't have a reason to dualboot instead of using VMs.
