  • How to install Microsoft office 2019?
    If u really want ms office this might be useful: https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps. I usually use Google docs which i think is better than office 365.
  • Are there any VM services which dont use the entire GUI and such?
    The best I know of right now on the open source and/or Linux side of things that works with Windows guest applications is Winapps - https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps. There's a bit of setup you'll need to do directly in the Windows VM. After that you should be able to launch the app exclusively into your Linux session.
  • There are 2 things that prevents me from going to Linux exclusively, can i overcome them?
    For both those programs it's no. But if you don't mind some extra setup you can run Winapps to run those programs anyway.

    Two, consider using Linux. Gaming on Linux is possible right now, you can run whatever software in Windows containers like if they were natives apps... Don't dual boot to Linux or you will come back to Windows, you should use Linux as the only one OS on your computer. Make VMs or containers to run Windows softwares (even a specific device that needs a specific driver, passthrough to your VM).
  • What do I need to know when installing Linux on my 2020 Intel MacBook Pro?
    Looks like they are looking for maintainers. Maybe check out some of the recommendations in the comments there? I don't really know anything about Winapps.
