Most embedded development by SMEs up to large multinationals is performed on Windows machines, as these machines easily link in to corporate networks and hence are backed up and maintained by the IT department which is usually expert only on Windows.    Indeed some companies have policies in place strictly prohibiting the use of MacOS or Linux even to access email when working from home.

Which is why you end up in the idiotic situation of being unable to work on your own product any more because someone has decided they no longer wish to support a program you use.  Even better, everything you do is owned by Microsoft, if you check the EULA - you *did* check the EULA, right?

For hobbyists it's fine, but for production software it's not even close to what is needed.

GCC is the industry standard, and everything else is based off that.  Whatever you're using, it'll be bog standard GCC inside.

What exactly are you using that requires really weirdly specific tools?
