Any others Linux only?

Desktop has been on Ubuntu since 2014-ish. Work Laptop also Linux for as long as I can remember. I do have a Windows 7 instance in a VM for some Office document compatibility--though considering crossover Linux before EOL next year just take it out back and shoot it.

Free as in freedom, though I've enjoyed the beer along the way.

    Exclusively Linux desktop for me. Had a separate Windows machine in the past for some applications not available on Linux.
    Now that these applications are accessible from a browser, it's Linux only.

    I recently bought a Chomebook (Asus C434TA) as my travel computer. I realized that most of the work I needed to do away from home involved only the Chrome browser and Web or Cloud resources. The capability to install Android apps and not need to mess with low-level Linux network and video drivers make Chrome very stable and user-friendly. The ability to directly access the Linux CLI subsystem is a bonus feature to me.

    This Chromebook experience has moved me to be closer to the "Linux primarily, Windows occasionally" mindset.

    Nope, I still need Windows applications that aren't on Linux.
