I've been 100% Macrosuck winblows free since 2006. Toyed with many Linux flavors. Debian derivatives are my favorite. Settled on Xubuntu for a long time. Lately I've been using Mint 18.3 Mate for new installs. Everything just seems to work out of the box first time.

Actually, I have both as there are some programs that only work on windows but if you have windows installed and a decent sized HD, you can have linux as well as most distro's (inc mint) will let you make a partition (you choose what get's how much disc) and you just choose windows or linux at startup. I use the latest Linux mint 19.3 Tina and yes it's much faster than windows which is frustratingly slow.

95% percent of the time I use Windows 10, while for some jobs I use Linux Mint 19.3 on VirtualBox.

I was thinking of switching to Linux completely, but for some apps I don't have a good Linux alternative.

I too use VirtualBox but the other way around. Linux host, winblows guest. Very rarely I'll need to use Macromedia Dreamweaver. It's the only application left that I have not found a good Linux alternative for that will not run with Wine.

Give me some examples of windows apps you can't live without.

Affinity Designer. And some older games that I know to play sometimes. 🙂

Another idea was dual-booting Linux Mint with Windows, but I would need to get a bigger SSD. My 240GB one won't do it with all the programs I have on there. And I don't want Linux on HDD...

Windows 10 on one pc with WSL2 and windows 11 on another. I had used ubuntu, debian, backtrack, kali and tails in the past.
