Why not put it on your desktop or notebook computer too?

Because Linux doesn't run all the applications I want to use. For me, operating systems exist primarily to run applications; all other aspects are secondary.

Of course, yet I would be interested to know what you can't run on a linux machine, either natively or using WINE.

Some of them could, like darktable, which I initially tried on this desktop's Kubuntu drive. But why? Everything I need works well now, I don't need an extra layer of complexity like WINE, which last time I looked had problems with a lot of 64-bit apps. That may have changed, but again, why?

Are you using an Apple, running MacOS?

And moderating PC Talk? LOL, no.

I have a M1 Mac Mini I bought to play with (technically very interesting), but I've had little use for it after I discovered that it didn't play well with the Sony TV I was going to HTPC with it.
