Awesome tip: run LinuxFX instead of Windows!
If you ever wanted a linux distro that both looks and behaves like Windows, well, wait no longer: https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2020/07/10/ubuntu-based-linux-os-similar-to-windows-10/#2e84b7c621b9
You can even run it from a thumb drive!
The best part: you can download, install, and run Windows programs just as you would under windows. For instance, I just now installed FlatCam, which is a windows program, and it functions just the same. More importantly: the entire installation process was the same as it would have been under windows. So, for those who don't know linux, it needn't hold you back: if you're comfortable with Windows, then you know enough to run and use LinuxFx.
And, of course, it's free.
You can download it here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxfxdevil/
