Overall, don't be afraid to switch distro (use Ventoy, load a few ISOs just in case), try to make sure you have an easy way of backing up your stuff (be it with a separate /home partition, or like I do with storing everything important in a separate drive and then using symlink to make it 'appear' in their 'default' places), and you can always use VM in a pinch (consult this guide or use quickemu or gnome-boxes)

In case some things you do absolutely needs Windows, keep this guide for setting up VM in mind, or use quickemu's GUI.

New to Manjaro… any advice?

Imo QEMU/KVM has better performance than VirtualBox. There are also some tools like Cassowary to make Windows apps run as if they're native apps (e.g. without opening VM first). It's harder to setup than VirtualBox, though.

Wine 8.0 out now

Floating, native Windows app windows on Linux via Cassowary would be a better pick than waiting for WINE to support it anytime soon.
Linux Workstation for Media?

Since then, I try to keep an eye on DaVinci Resolve things (like MakeResolveDeb) and things like the WinApps/cassowary, Gictorbit/MiMillieuh Photoshop installer, and Photogimp, or news like about OBS being officially supported on Linux through Flatpak and why that matters.
My little Frankenstein: Fully working i3 on WSL2 (config in comments)

Here's a fun idea: Install Cassowary on a setup like this and have your Windows windows to display within the Linux display (as in treat your Windows host like the Windows VM/remote that Cassowary works with) xd.

Take a look at https://github.com/casualsnek/cassowary. If your license key doesn't work/you don't have one, they really aren't that expensive. Might also work without any activation at all.
