Currently this is how I use my computers:

Desktop Computer: Runs only Ubuntu.

Main Laptop (newer laptop and used as a desktop): Runs Windows 10. Since some applications I use does not support Linux and cannot be ran using wine or some have issues when trying to use it with wine.

Laptop 2 (almost 2 year old laptop): Runs Windows 10 as the host OS but I use Parrot OS on it with VMware for security and to remain safe when going out and connecting to public networks.

I'm not really a fan of dual booting.

Just a little further, regarding

If you are not acquainted with it, make a friend of alternativeto.net

If you google in

alternative to <name of your MS app>

it will appear in the first few entries.

Look in particular for the ones that work on Linux, and ones which are cross-platform. Then you can try them from a Windows environment and see if they check your boxes of requirements.

If testing them with your files, be sure to use a "save as" first, and then test them on the Linux app safely.
