I have been using Fedora Linux for years (current v34) with the Plasma environment.
Very stable, with updates at your discretion.

I run Win10 in the Oracle VM VirtualBox. This is the only way I'll ever use Windows again! I like treating it as "just another program"! The reason I'm even using it at all, is because I am doing a Diploma in Software Development that has a C# stream.

FYI: Hardware spec:
- CPU: Intel i7-11700KF @ 3.60GHz (16x Cores/Threads)
- RAM: 31.2GiB
- Vid: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650
- Storage: SSD 2TB

Even with all this, I still had to configure the VM to allow Win10 access to 8 Cores and 10GB RAM to get any descent level of useful response.

I still remember using MS-DOS 4.0 and then Win 2.11/95. Back then "win.exe" WAS just a program running on MS-DOS. OH, for the good old days Frown | :(

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
