    There is a trade-off, Windows 10 for web development is like elephant in the room. I have three terminal -> CMD prompt, Powershell, Windows subsystem bash :3

    Most of the devices you develop for nowadays run Linux. For example, I am currently putting together a system for driving an SMS modem. That runs Linux, and the server it will be connected to runs Linux. All my development machines run Linux. It just makes things so much easier.

    So to sum up the main pros for Windows revolve around doing Linux type things, so why not just go with a native Linux distro? In my opinion that would be the best developer platform, especially so if you're on a low budget.

    I've love PC's too!!! I personally just use Git Bash myself. Great speed and most of all the features you need from a Linux term. Plus great Node intergration

    If you want to develop native apps for Apple operating systems then you're going to want a Mac. If you only write apps inside the browser, then it's a matter of preference.

    Great vid Erik. Can you give some more details on how you port forward your localhost to your DigitalOcean VM?

    I too build my own machines and I can only assume one can build a PC that is far cheaper and faster than any Mac? If I could build my own Mac I would do that in a heartbeat, though.

    is funny how a lot of people are saying that vs code is gonna solve all the crap that comes with a pc.. specially a cheap pc .. they are ugly.. slow, and just always felt like a car that needs constant fixing , windows has always been that way . macs are easy to use , pretty and no installing software just to make it workable. if passion is there and ur broke .. i guess is the only option, but me i coded on my iphone for 4 months and busted my ass to get a mac and i have 0 regrets, if i had boughten a pc, i would probably be saving to get rid of it and buy a mac 😂

    Just get a Windows PC or laptop (with some search you can find decent hardware at a ⅓ or ¼ MacBook price) and another 128GB ssd or even a 64GB one (there are very cheap ones), install Ubuntu on the second drive.

    Ubuntu for coding and Windows for gaming. Paradise. You're welcome.

    The time spent trying to hack Windows to work for coding is better spent at actually coding, plus the skills learned of actually using Linux will help you a LOT in your career.

    Wouldn't recommend dual boot both in the same drive cause it may slow up Windows badly.

    I have been using Windows from the beginning. My first pc was on Windows 98 and I have used all the Windows versions since then. I believe you can do everything on Windows specially , all the software you need to use for webdevelopment. Its cheaper than Mac. But when you grow, start earning, start presenting you to clients , you better but a Macbook pro. its expensive, but its a life time investment. it never goes slow. it's light, log battery life. Hance , it will increase your productivity . So my recommed, Windows for beginner and Mac for Professional web developers.

    My first version of Windows was 2.1 back in the 80's. It really sucked. I stuck with MS-DOS until 1992 when Windows 3.1 came out. It was mostly bearable at that time. But I still lived in and out of MS-DOS until Windows 95 came out. Also in the late 80's and early 90's I used Unix systems in school. So, I am used to both those worlds. I've used Macs for school and they are quite good. But I keep migrating back to Windows. And since Microsoft is becoming more dev friendly there really isn't a reason for me to change now. Although I do have a system that duo boots into Ubuntu just because sometimes I love working in a linux environment and it runs a little bit faster than Windows.

    Got a portable £300 Lenovo laptop in 2018 with a core i3 and SSD. Runs perfectly with VS code and boots up just as fast as my £1200+ gaming laptop. I would definitely recommend getting an intel core i3 and a SSD as minimum for a developer, and everything else is optional these days.

    I'm using Windows and I would never be able to afford the laptop (with the specs) that I have in a Mac. Don't waste money on a Mac unless you have the money to waste.

    One ☝️ more thing, lol. I find that it’s a good to get out of the “hacking solutions” mentality. If you are gonna game, just get a pc. If you are a creative front end developer a MAC ain’t gonna hurt. Even if it’s second hand. If you are a backend deity, most servers run Linux so why not. Computer prices are lower than ever so why suffer

    Today either platform are the same for developers but at the same time severing is not the same as a couple of years ago. In my case it involves prototypes and pitching new ideas 💡. I often have to do creative stuff including videos of new features. If you are on a pc, your best is Linux I think.

    VS Code + Integrated terminal is all you need in 2018.
    In the past mac was better, but in these days if you have a win10 machine running with an SSD, you are all set.
