I went through this process about 18 months ago. I asked similar questions to you and, like you, I got a lot of replies. It ended up a rather long thread; read it all if you want; here's my three main posts:
Here's a brief, non-exhaustive, overview of features:
In the main, I've had no trouble installing Perl modules. One issue I had, took me a while to sort out: "cpan: Terminal does not support AddHistory.". With another, I needed help from fellow monks: "Update XML::LibXML - can't find "xlocale.h"".
There's a number of open source applications that I access directly from Win10: Firefox; Thunderbird; Vlc; and others.
I use this setup five days a week for $work; and seven days a week for my own projects. Overall, I'm very happy with what I have.
I felt this was getting overly long; I could've written a lot more. Please ask if you have any specific questions about things I haven't touched on, or areas where you'd like further details.
