I used the OneGet package manager to install basic stuff I'm used to from Linux (emacs, pandoc, etc.), and then I use virtual desktops to organize the workspaces by task: putting emacs in one desktop, zotero standlone in another, etc.
I then have emacs markdown mode using pandoc for previewing, etc.
I sometimes get stuck on details around environment variables and such, but it mostly works.
Oh, and Storage Spaces and ReFS gives me what I've been looking for in BTRFS and ZFS: robust, flexible and easily expandable storage.
Why not Linux? On my laptop, I for the first time ran into driver issues that had me wasting too much time for basic functionality. I get reliable hardware with Windows, and long battery life. For my desktop, I need some apps not available on Linux (though I have Ubuntu setup on VirtualBox there).
