I have never tried to use Linux, Kninjanin. I don't actually use my computer now, not nearly as much as I did between 1990 and 2015. I co-wrote and formatted a few books, composed (and gave) non-profit presentations, gave seminars and classes, built and maintained two websites. I worked with graphics so much I even considered learning Adobe.
All that time I knew about Linux, but was doing fine with MacOSX and MSWord.
Now I use the computer mainly for continuing education as well as keeping in touch with friends, both virtual and real-life far-flung. So I don't need much more than an Internet connection plus a mail program!
