Are you experienced? - Jimi Hendrix

Linux, as a desktop OS, is light and fast, not bloated with crap. It's free, and is packed with open source software. Therefore, it's generally speaking more secure. And also offers more privacy, since there is less of big brother companies scraping out all your user habits with telemetry. For browsing the Internet, the experience is on par with other OSs if not better. And you can take full control of your computer with some dedication and self-education.

A developer does not need Linux, as he will be best served with the environment he is programming for, but if developing for a *nix server (all web-devs included), than Linux is the clear winner. Also good development tooling is one package manager click or command away.

Yes, Linux is probably not for you. You might need to have an open mind, if you are very used to your current system. Also, each ecosystem has the software that runs on it. So, of course, if you need a certain tool and it's only available on this or that OS, stick to it.

Having used Windows and Mac, today I'm a happy Linux user, not looking back. Each systems has it's pros and cons. For me Linux is the best.
