Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3 Windows 10 Home x86_64

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 LTS x86_64

I love Ubuntu. Use it on a bootable thumb drive. 

 

- If it ain't broken, don't fix it!

in that case don't install linux, because you will be dissapointed by it. 

Phone: iPhone 6s | 64GB iOS
MacBook Pro: Mid-2012 | Core i5 3210M | 8GB RAM | 250GB SSD | macOS

I would go with some Ubuntu variant with the information you've given. Windows app compatibility does not depend on the choice of desktop environment or distribution. Also, in your case I would seriously consider dual-booting to see if you can run said apps, or even if you can work with any Linux distributions at all. That way it is somewhat easier to have the option to just continue using Windows, in case you notice they don't work that well for you.

 

Good suggestions were already given for the choice of distribution; xubuntu is indeed a good choice, if your mind is set on xfce. However if you are not that familiar with Linuxes or their DEs, I would choose a more modern desktop environment. You didn't tell your HW, but if it has even somewhat decent amount of RAM, the choice of DE doesn't matter that much. In that case, pick plain Ubuntu or, if you want something instead of Pantheon OOTB, Kubuntu for KDE/Plasma, or some other variant of Ubuntu. You can always just install additional DEs later, despite what flavor you chose to install.

most of then are in linux but you have to search for individual apps and games you want to use / play

if it was useful give it a like :) btw if your into linux pay a visit here  and i will be thankful if you send me an opinion here

Yeah dual boot is a good option thanks for this. Btw, my laptop specification is ryzen 3 2200u, 8gb ram, 1tb hdd. I choose xfce cause it need less of resource

For Office, Microsoft Edge you'd be better off using some other office suite (LibreOffice) or web browser (Firefox, Chromium), which works on Linux natively. At least MS Office doesn't work with Wine, at least the cloud-enabled O365 -version. Earlier versions might, Edge might, but it won't be smooth sailing.

 

Blender and Spotify have native Linux versions.

 

I have no idea on Obs and Davinci. I would wait if someone else here is informed on them on search via Google.

 

Steam has a native Linux client, and some games have native Linux ports, many other work with the help of Proton (and wine) almost transparently to the users. However, some games do not work so well, some not at all. Look at protondb for information on specific games.

 

I have no experience with epic games or ubisoft, but IIRC neither are nice players regards to DRM, which will usually translate to poor playability on Linux machines with Wine.
