Moving from Capture One to Linux Darktable/Rawtherapee - Opinions???
2

My photo editing system is a Windows 10-based computer: an i7 with 32GB of memory and Nvidia GTX 1660s graphics card. I only shoot Fujifilm and use Capture One 20 along with Topaz DeNoise AI and Affinity Photo. I also have a copy of Silkypix 10 Pro, but I find it very confusing to use so I rarely launch it.

Overall, the photo software works fine, but I use Linux for my day-to-day computing and only use the Windows 10 system for photo work. I am not pleased with paying fees to upgrade Capture One or Topaz each year, and I am wondering if moving to Linux versions of  Darktable or Rawtherapee, along with Neat Image and GIMP, would be a reasonable solution.

I assume the open source software has some challenges with usability and functionality vs. the commercial products, so I would maintain my existing Windows solution as a virtual machine until I become comfortable and confident with the other programs.

For a Fujifilm user, what are the biggest negatives of moving from Capture One, Topaz DeNoise, and Affinity Photo into a Linux-based solution?
