Windows has been good to me, over the years.
I remember the fun of getting a network (co-ax, in those days, none of yer fancy RJ45 stuff) up and running; keeping it that way before Windows 3.11 for Workgroups. Suddenly, you could just plug it in, install Windows and share files, and printers. And it's got better - with a number of retrograde steps - over the years. Even Win 10 isn't bad - ugly, schizophrenic, greedy as hell, clumsy at times, yes: but not actually bad - it's solid, competent, and has a huge supply of damn good software.

Paying for it used to be the price for that, and it was worth paying (with a few exceptions I managed to avoid). A VM? I'd need another license, and I only have Win7 ones to spare.

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
