    Linux effecting hardware/Windows when installed on separate SSD's?

    I installed Windows 10 on one SSD first because it's a giant pain in the ass to configure to your liking then installed Solus on my other SSD with seemingly no problem.

    Is there a bulletproof way of running Windows apps on Linux?

    For me, one of the biggest problems with Linux was software compatibility. Yes, there are many open-source Linux-compatible alternatives to most apps out there, but re-learning tools is probably the last thing I want to deal with in my workflow. From my research wine seems to be far from perfect...
