i do everything on my Linux box that i used to do on Windows. Best way to see whats it all about is to boot Linux from a usb stick. Have a look at https://ventoy.net/en/index.html to do that. basically once the ventoy script formats your usb, then you are able to drag and drop a few Linux .iso files to the usb and can choose to boot from .I’ve never used Linux and I’m curious about it.
