Thinking about switching to #Ubuntu (from Win7) on my main computer. Anyone have any tips, tricks or apps (that I should install)? This isn't going to happen right away but at one point I want to get away from Windows.

@g This might not be a good idea for a first step, but I think you should run Windows in a VM, avoid using it as much as possible, and avoid Windows only software through VM or Wine.

To keep my host clean (normal laptop, 16GBs RAM), I run Linux VMs and containers. This way, I avoid messing up my host packages and I can test closed source Linux apps (ewww) without having to trust them. I use libvirt and virt-manager.

Also, install Steam through Flatpak. Can't live without it. 😀
