I must say that, if you are primarily developing for/in the Windows environment, then certainly, I can understand your need for it. I would like to know a little more about your USB problems though, as I have not had them.

I am not storing any critical data on the "windows" drive, but am using Shared Folders with full read/write out to the Linux filesystem. Further, I use LuckyBackup (rsync) to provide multiple backups of my home directory to three USB sticks (USB 3.0 - 2x256Gb/1x16Gb) every night. The sticks are left in-place. In addition, I backup the Windows 10 virtual drive file on a weekly basis, to another USB stick (256Gb).

My biggest problem with USB sticks has been the hardware connections, on my old laptop (retired), but never with the OS.

I don't agree with your statement about Linux being a hobbyist OS, as I believe (especially for Fedora) its is well beyond that now.

Have you ever had to install Windows 10? Installing Fedora Linux is easier. Once setup, it is just another workstation.

Do you know what was my reason for going to Linux 20 years ago? Micro@#$%!!!! I had had enough of their crap OS and being used as a guinea pig for their interminable updates. That and having to pay for each major upgrade. Linux is FREE and Open Source. It doesn't get any better.

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.
