We also develop on Linux, deploy on Linux, but test mainly on Windows and
MacOS. Our development environment runs far better on Linux than anyother
OS. But this is also the way we chose to work so every company and
developer have the right to choose its own. If we stick to Linux we will
have to live with Chrome without a debugger version of the runtime as well
(which would be very hard).
