Relap53D is certified for OpenSUSE Linux. All of python and a lot of other modern development environments work well on Linux. Chances are very high that you will be required to use Linux a lot for many good reasons. Example: openfoam is Linux only.

I am guessing you may be running the Ubuntu app under Windows 10. If not consider WSL as a starting point. Only. Not the final destination.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Subsystem_for_Linux - WSL

After you become comfortable with that, consider seriously a dual boot environment, i.e., grub, or virtualization. Why? So you can master Linux system maintenance and very importantly, UNIX tools.

If you view learning to diversify your skill set as painful, you really may want to consider some other primary area of interest. This need to learn new skills will continue to happen as long as you work in basic Sciences like Physics. And it is accelerating.
