I have a choice - sort of.  The problem is, there are too many other
programs I need which don't run (or don't run correctly) under Linux.
It's a problem because I need these programs several times a day.

So I use VirtualBox with (multiple) Linux VM's and QEMU for ARM work.
This allows me to compile, anyway.

Of course, final test is on a real Linux machine - but since much of my
work is ARM based, it's much slower than my development machines, even
under VirtualBox and QEMU.
