Is pycharm faster to work with veesus linux?

I am trying to work on linux with pyhthon but the environment for linux is not mature enough. For example, pycharm tells you the errors you make and can fix it for you. I am using selenium automation. Any tips as I want to use linux as it is free. Productivity wise Phycharm seems better.

I'm fairly sure you can just install PyCharm on Linux. Regardless, comparing an IDE to an OS makes no sense. What you are actually asking, is whether there's a free alternative to certain paid features offered by PyCharm, which can be installed on Linux - and the answer should be yes. I haven't tried it myself, but have you tried installing VSCode, and then installing some Python extension/plugins, including Selenium?

Not quite sure what you're asking this question for. If the OS and community edition of Pycharm are free, and it works well for you, then use them. More often then not, IDE's are way better than the text editor that comes with IDLE. I always settle with IDLE though, because I'm much too lazy to deal with the personalization that comes with IDE'S, hahaha...... Good thing about Python is that you don't have to compile for a given system, so you can develop in Linux, and easily port the scripts to other OS's, so committing to linux isn't a bad thing here.

Basically I like pycharm because it is easy to work with packages like setting up the file structure and assisting you with code editinh, but it is not free if you want to use some special plugins such as selenium. That is the main reason I prefer Linux. My question is is there code editing assistance when you use linux? If so I do not need to subscribe for pycharm. I hope it is clear now.
