I am in the market for a new laptop, and am wondering if I should use Windows 7, 8, 10, or some flavor of Linux (Ubuntu)?
This will be a general purpose/dev laptop, with most and perhaps all of the dev being Meteor.
Is one OS decidedly better for Meteor development, or is it pretty much a case of “six of one, half dozen of the other”?
My first computer was a Macintosh (Classic), but since I’ve been a professional developer (20+ years), I’ve had only Windows (Delphi, then C#, and some Java). I’m not “married” to Windows, though. I’d be willing to switch to Linux or Mac if there was a decided advantage to do so.
Or perhaps a dual-boot system, with Windows 10 & Ubuntu, or some other combination.
I’m also open to suggestions on a dev laptop (make and model). I’m not a gamer, either as a player or a developer, so don’t need a super-duper system in that sense.
