Technically, most installed apps on the VM will run. Although Adobe is pre-configured and Abelton isn't. You can read more on the Github

By Windows webapps you mean https://github.com/Fmstrat/winapps, right? What about Chrome webapps? I remember a Linux program somewhere on GitHub that made websites into webapps, but it didn't have support for extensions. I could maybe do it with Electron but support for extensions in it is limited. I currently use Ungoogled Chromium for these webpages, if only Mozilla didn't abandon webapps, that was legitimately a bad business choice to make...

If your complaint is that you're locked into the Office ecosystem because you don't want to learn how to script/improve LO or because you have to work with files that only open in MS Office but still want to use Linux, then there's barely anything LO can ever reasonably do for you. You can just run Office 2016 or 365 on Linux via Wine, or use winapps to run modern Office through virtualization.
Does my data(apps, images etc.) go over to Linux when switching from Windows?

PDFs are no issue. Microsoft Office isn't available natively on the desktop, but the web version works fine. You can also run MS Office via something like WinApps if you can handle a VM. However, for general usage that's overkill, as there are plenty of Linux compatible alternatives, such as LibreOffice (installed on Ubuntu by default), OnlyOffice, WPS Office, etc.

I've just switched to WLED. So much easier than writing my own in FastLED.

Pretty new to all of this, if I wanted to do a setup like that and wanted every zone (depicted in the color of the line) to be individually controllable, can it be done with RGBIC strips and WLED? The strips will be behind the table & monitor and underneath the shelves.

There's actually a Wiki that has a long list of controllers-- some easier to get/make than others: https://github.com/Aircoookie/WLED/wiki/Compatible-hardware

Seconded. Be aware though that these are strange fixed address lights that we still don't fully understand though they are ws2812 compatible (see https://github.com/Aircoookie/WLED/issues/1312 ) So you can't chain them, for example.
