Don't just dive balls deep headfirst right into Linux
First, learn what software works on it natively (or under WINE without horrible bugs) and learn to use that as a replacement for what you already use
If you hate the replacements, don't fucking bother using Linux

I would recommend Blender as a video editor (there are others but Blender is fucking nice)
Krita can replace Photoshop for some uses but not others

Finally: Fuck Manjaro, install Gentoo
>>
>>82020227
The retards who complain that photoshop isnt available for Linux simply cannot bear to hear that literally any other image software is good enough and does 99% of what photoshop can do. What really does photoshop have that something like Gimp cant do? Some obscure fucking brush bristle length shit?

10 years ago I summed up; just make one distro, universal installation method, and develop software for it, make people feel this is windows competitior

Why do you even bother with that trash?
>>
>>82020591
Yep, easy as.
Honestly, I prefer Linux this way. Normies would just screw everything up and turn it into Windows.
I wish distros make installation even more difficult to weed out all of them.

Why do people don’t do any research on what works and what not on Linux before installing it?

That is propably because of faggotty Windows on dual-boot. Search how to turn off fast startup in Windows to fix this.

Manjaro is a product of the Noobuntu meme - people needed to invent a new "newbie-centric" OS because Ubuntu was "lame".
If you are a Manjaro user, what you really want to be using is Ubuntu.
>but muh AUR
Name one piece of software that you can get from AUR that you can't get from apt, snap, PPAs or just downloading a .deb file.

Photoshop has AI tools now, guy. You can rotate people's heads, change facial expressions, replace backgrounds as if it was greenscreen, etc.

Retards in this thread comparing it to GIMP have clearly never used it professionally. Sure, GIMP is OK if you need to do small things here and there, but it isn't good enough for use in primary work flow where there's actually substantial and continual work to do.
