Converting to Linux

Ok, so Windows 11 has finally annoyed me to the point that I'm giving dual boot with Linux a go on my laptop. I've gone for Mint Cinnamon, and opted for Evolution for email, Chrome, and I've got WhatsApp and discord on there so far. I'm loving how clean everything is to be honest.

Not so thrilled on the lack of MS Office and Onedrive so far, but could see this being a daily driver if I can sort out Onedrive.

Does anyone have any advice to somebody coming voer from Windows for the first time? I'm familiar with Linux in a terminal sense as I play with RPi's a fair bit. Not really dabbled in desktop before though.

Just remember that there are more or many desktop options with infinite customisations. So if for whatever reason something in the UI ended up annoying you, there likely is a way to change it or pick a different desktop environment entirely.

Btw there are open source OneDrive clients for linux.

Any recommendations? I know I sync works but you have to pay, I've heard of rclone too but apparently it's a bit patchy.
