Today i just decided to move to ubuntu 17.04 from windows 10, is it hard to get project done fast with ubuntu? I need some thought, because windows really pissed me off from the lagging retard.

    I take it you are a first time Linux user or have not actually used Linux for programming. It's generally the same to the user. Only that terminal in Linux is pretty fast and much more usable than that god damn fuck of an emulator in Windows. God I hate that.
    Everything else is pretty much the same. Same programming environment (no Visual Studio I think. (Who uses IDE anyway?)). Same utility apps available. Easier setup for a programming environment though.
    I prefer Linux, although I was forced to use Windows for about a month and it didn't make much difference other than getting used to the cmd.

    @mpourismaiel their website said the latest version which is 17.04 one, are more stable and its "easy to use (for the newbie)" is it easy? Because i dont have time to learn all of the command stuff

    If the thing u develop is not limit to windows dev env only, u should be fine ;)

    Why don't you dual boot and give it a try!

    X99 motherboard
    i7 6950x, oc to 4.8GHz
    64GB 3200MHz RAM
    2 Titan xp's in sli
    1500 watt psu (just in case)
    water cooled loop, positive air flow in the case
    512 GB ssd (2 if u need)
    even after that if you see a lag of 1 femto second, that's because your heart skipped a beat.

    Just kidding man. Lag is conditional. As is life, go with it, you will see new paradigms with it.

    @sam9669 everytime i switch desktop screen on windows 10 creators update and minimized the ide that i use, it keep lag maybe because i run too many software in one session, and that's pissed me off

    @fidellr no that's just what they say. It's just a lot more stable.
    Don't worry about learnung new commands because the only ones you need that are different from Windows are mostly navigation and aliases, which are pretty easy. They are absolutely not needed for day to day work. Maybe just apt-get commands for installing apps if you're into using them.
    Don't worry about commands. It's not 2006.

    @fidellr if you are a pro dev, then consider my build, might cost you under $6000, that price was rough estimate. Idk current market prices.

    @mpourismaiel so wht the differences between linux and windows for programming? Many people even rhe lecturer youtuber said macos and linux are more preferred for programming

    @fidellr Try it, u'll see xD

    @fidellr if i can jump in here, it's basically just because of the terminal/command line and the fact that *nix environments just tend to be a lot nicer low level. If you don't do anything low level you won't really notice anything different in terms of your programming experience (minus Linux being more lightweight and taking up less of your resources)

    @fidellr mostly it's due to the terminal for me. But it's not an essential. Other than that it's not that much different in my opinion.

    @fidellr Preference is a big part of it. I know .NET devs who prefer that stack (Windows, C#, SQL Server).

    If you're doing PHP and MySQL, Linux is definitely preferable to Windows (though I haven't abandoned​ Windows myself just yet; I may soon).

    Linux OSs also tend to be lighter weight, as was previously mentioned -- which is definitely nice.

    All that said, you may want to Google for some kind of an objective comparison that lists the pros and cons of each. As I said at the top, preference is a really big part of this choice -- and you may find which you prefer once you find some decent feature and performance comparisons.

    I kinda prefer elementary OS because it's not bloated
