As a new Linux user I'm glad you are doing this series. I'm running Manjaro Linux and haven't booted into Windows in nearly 3 weeks. Have much to learn.

It was the same for me when I transitioned to Linux. You will learn and you will wonder why you did not make the switch sooner. I am glad you find this series useful. Thanks for chiming in and WELCOME to the community.
