RE: Moving from Windows to Linux

I have to use Windows for work, but dumped it at home many years ago as I hated how it tried to limit what I could do. I have a Win10 partition, but very rarely use it. I've used flavours of Ubuntu for most of this time. I seem to prefer KDE and so used Kubuntu for a while, but now on Ubuntu Studio that has used KDE for the last few versions.

I'm not a gamer, so that aspect is fairly irrelevant to me. I do scan a fair few docs on an old HP 3in1, but that has no document feeder. I do tend to avoid Snaps. Chrome from a Snap was really slow to load and I was limited on what files I could access from it. I installed Brave and it mostly works, but recently I get times where it slows the PC to a standstill. I had that before and am not sure what I can do about it as I can't even run something to check on what is using all the resources.

I spend a lot of time in the browser with LibreOffice for docs, Thunderbird for some email and various apps for recording. I do have some issues around recording video, but can edit with Kdenlive.

Photoshop is often quoted as a reason for not using Linux, but my image editing needs are basic.

I hope Linux works well for you.
