I am a software engineer. I always go the FOSS route whenever I possibly can. I love Rust, I very much like Python and I hate Java. VS Code is the best editor, despite being Electron based.
If you leave your PC unattended somewhere near me, your Windows installation might "mysteriously" "disappear". Huh, that's weird.
I use Linux for everything, except a couple times a year when I play Battlefield games that I bought before I cared as much as I do now. I no longer buy any Windows games. Except... I would buy a Windows license solely to play Star Citizen.
I am somewhat artistic, but these days I tend to be more interested in the creative tools themselves than actually using them. Blender, GIMP, Inkscape, Ardour and Godot are some of the programs that I tell myself I am proficient with.
I use Arch. And XFCE. I like other DEs as well but it's just that I need a DE that's good.
