So I am looking for some advice, and I think everyone here comes from a similar unique perspective that I have. I have been using Linux (Fedora, specifically) as my primary desktop OS for a very long time. However, I am currently debating moving back to Windows as my primary OS with Windows 10. The main reasons are all the RMM tools are built for Windows. We use N-Central which is web based, and almost 90 of the functionality works natively in Linxu, but the remote support application requires a Windows client as does their custom automation tool builder (basically drag and drop powershell builder).
My current set up is a Fedora 20 desktop and I use a win7 vm to use the RMM tools I can't use in Linux. It has worked pretty well and I don't really have any complaints. It does use more resources that way than if I could just use Linux (not sure if it would be the same resource usage if I was using just Windows). I have gotten my setup to be exactly what works for me and is really efficient. But I am starting to get close to life cycle time for my laptop, and it is time to load a new version of Fedora. I find myself missing features that the Windows 2 in 1s can do like the Lenovo ThinkPad yoga or the Surface Pro 3. One of my biggest hang ups with Windows was the lack of Workspaces. That seems to be fixed in 10.
Basically, my concern moving is two-fold:
1. Linux really works for me and I enjoy using it.
2. I manage several Linux installations and Linux consulting is a line of business for us, so I am worried that not using it everyday will make me rusty.
My motivation for moving is:
1. Don't need a vm for RMM tools
2. The features of the two in ones.
I welcome any thoughts, but please let's avoid letting this devolve into a Linux vs Windows holy war
