Ue5 game dev on linux?

After using UE5 in Linux for weeks, I had to go back to UE5 in windows a few weeks ago, mainly because it was more stable on Windows and also because I miss some features in Linux (Live coding for instance).
And also because some plugins are windows compatible only (dungeon architect for instance)

Has anybody tried to work in UE5 editor in VM with GPU passthrough?

I’ve also thought about this kind of solution on linux…but I’ve not even been able to have a good and easy working GPU passthrough solution… so not sure it’s possible
