Already running it many years now :). Also, Windows Subsystem for Linux
using the same source tree as Windows. Works lovely.

I also have a personally hacked and recompiled clang-format plugin for
Visual Studio which auto-formats on save. Very, very useful.

Modern tooling is amazing. I only just recently was having a discussion
with Rob Stewart about the merits of intentionally typing out crap
unformatted C++ and letting clang-tidy -fix rewrite it for me into
non-crap C++, and clang-format to reformat it for me. He was not
convinced, but I think he is watching that space.
