Which OS For Development

Recently my Windows10 OS has started to crash randomly and each time I spend quite a while waiting for it to reset and then more time trying to solve the issue. So far I haven't managed to find the cause and fix it. My system spec is AMD Phenom II x4 840, 4GB RAM, basic graphics card.

 

This has led me to consider switching to another OS and I am wondering what other developers use at home for electronics and making; Eagle PCB layout, 3D printing, Microchip MPLAB X , OpenSCAD, Wireshark, Android Studio, etc (all the good stuff we see on Element14).

 

Therefore my poll question is:

What OS do you use at home for building, programming and testing projects?

 

Please feel free to use the comments section to add any detail; good or bad.

[My apologies to OS development teams if you've been left off my poll list. ]

 

I look forward to seeing the results, thank you.
