    You should try Elementary OS -- https://elementary.io/ -- very stable, free app store (pay what you want, now so basically still free), beautiful UI that resembles Mac OSX and a bit like Windows. I have been using it since version 0.2 (coming up on .5 now, I believe.) Try it as a live ISO and I think you'd like it. There are lots of apps that are cross platform. Steam installs great and more than half my library from Windows works on it!

    Such as?

    I run Linux everyday, and the only app I run regularly that doesn't work under Linux is EZNEC+. That one gets run in a VM.

    I need office, not a set of program "like office" or "as good as office," etc.

    Emulator? I'd say I'd just rather run Windows, then. Which is what I did. ;)

    No, a VM. That's real Windows, running inside the Linux host.
    So you needed Outlook mail, then. :)

    That was one of the things I needed. Really liked Outlook, too. But then the university where I teach switched to a Gmail system and I just started using the web email interface most of the time. Worked fine. :)

    That's the one thing that Linux has not yet been able to conquer, and for some people, it's a big feature. There have been a few attempts to fill it in, but then M$ changes the protocols, and... :oops:

    Yeah, me too. Got rid of office, they have their hand in your pocket. I also use Libre office, great product.

    I heard on the radio that Microsoft intends to start charging a yearly fee. At first, for companies only and then... consumers!

    Libre Office will read and write office docs no problem. You might want to look at it.
