Question Windows or Linux/BSD despite the latter being a cult?

I wanted to get into Blender for transitioning my Sonic the Hedgehog shorts from Source Filmmaker after a couple of makers transitioned over to proprietary, paid software that I didn't want to spend thousands on. Despite some threats on giving up, I ended up making a short anyway and I plan on transitioning all of my assets to Blender. I may be using Windows, but then I saw this:

Now, I have been using Linux for two years, but then I gave up on it after the Linux version of Kodi didn't recognize my game controller (even though the Windows version did). I realized that Linux was overrated after reading these posts:

https://scalibq.wordpress.com/2013/0...ing-kruger-os/
Or basically type in "Linux" on that blog.

But now, after hearing that Linux is much FASTER at literally fucking everything Blender ever does and CG Geek wanted to completely transition to Linux if he wasn't using Adobe products (I don't), I wanted to at least transition to the OS Scali recommends over Linux, FreeBSD (TrueOS is the Ubuntu of FreeBSD), but I'm not sure about even that, as he stated numerous times that Windows was even better than that. Even then, if you see Alan Timston's comments on this article (https://scalibq.wordpress.com/2013/0...x-malware-kit/) and Scali's replies to it, it puts me in the worst position possible!

Should I suffer with Windows bloat because Linux is a cult??? Or should I jump ship to Linux/BSD because the render times in Blender are faster and hardware even further reaches its true potential than on Windows???
