I am trying to figure out how to get completely rid of Windows. I have 4 machines, 3 with different Linux distros and one with W10. My main PC, with Manjaro has a KVM with W10, but only for games that cannot run under Linux (multi/anti-cheat).
So, in order to remove Windows completely, I need to solve the following:
Drivers and firmware updates.
I have few devices that need firmware updates and/or using software to save profiles on them. These are (for now), SoundBlaster G6, X-Bows keyboard, Corsair and Logitech mice (both wireless).
iTunes + iPhone
I have couple of Apple devices and I don’t want to use iCloud, primarily for the cost and secondary for the time to backup them, which is way slower than backup locally via USB.
Also I have a huge music library (former DJ) organized in dynamic playlists in iTunes. I do not consider “Apple Music” subscription a solution, nor Android, so only a Linux phone in the future.
On my own research, I found out the iTunes works under WINE, but only for music playing, no sync/backup.
I don’t know if a second KVM with passing through some devices will do the trick, but some of them are used in host, so I am not sure.
Any other solutions that I am not aware of?
Software to try?
