Lol, I've been there before hence the decision to use a completely separate system for Linux. If I constantly have to switch to Windows when I haven't yet learned what to do on Linux to accomplish a certain task, then I'll just end up frustrated with Linux and not boot it at all.rambo919 wrote: ⤴Fri Aug 17, 2018 2:19 pmIf you don't need any specific apps it can be very easy to stay out of a windows install.... the problem comes when wine just plain refuses to work or you get infuriated that the fullscreen video keeps playing on the wrong screen no matter what settings you use or whatever.... then you switch between windows and linux for a while like between two wives that are sisters.... annoying but needed sometimes if you have the energy to handle it.
We leave our desktops on 24/7 so if I encounter something on the Linux laptop that requires a lot of reading/research, it's easy to hop onto one of the Windows desktops to do the task quickly. Then I can take my time finding alternative software and learning how to accomplish my tasks on Linux.
Oh, I expect I'll need to spend a lot of time learning/adapting. By doing it on a test box and not on production systems, I don't have downtime and it lessens the frustration while I'm learning.
