Windows user to try Bodhi but need help in picking some alternative windows app!


You see my old laptop is on windows 10 Redstone 5. I have found that some times my laptop spkies to 100% and then comes back down and it did not use to do this.

my pc specs are
Intel Core i5 3210M @ 2.50GHz Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
6.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
Hewlett-Packard 183F (U3E1)
Generic PnP Monitor (1366x768@60Hz)
Intel HD Graphics 4000 (HP)
238GB MTFDDAK256MAM-1K1 (SATA (SSD))

So i have decided to try another lighter os to see if that would help.

Before I do a full install I need to know was do I get alternative apps from?

The apps that I am
winehq app
Photoshop
microsoft word
Grammarly in Microsoft word

TomTom sat nav??

find alternative app
nitro pro (signature pen support) pdf
internetdownloadmanager
winx youtube downloader
franz
videostudiopro
screen recording
mailbird email client

Will GCleaner work on your os?

Before I go full force I need some help as I am new to Linux.

Hello there

Photoshop = Gimp, Krita
MS Office = Libreoffice, WPS Office, Light office (abiword)
mailbird = Thunderbird
Videostudiopro = Kdenlive, Openshot. Shotcut, Flowblade
Gcleaner = Bleachbit

All Linux alternative apps you can see here: https://alternativeto.net or simply use google for searching it

I have experience only with those alternatives I mentioned above.

I would try to figure out why your machine is spiking to 100% first. Yes, win10 is quite bloated but not sure that's causing the spike.

As for your apps, I am guessing you are looking for replacements for these:

Photoshop - gimp
microsoft word - Libreoffice
Grammarly in Microsoft word - no clue what this is

TomTom sat nav?? - no equivalent that I know of, possibly might run through wine

nitro pro (signature pen support) pdf - possibly might run through wine
internetdownloadmanager - unnecessary on ANY OS. Probably spyware or just bloatware at best.
winx youtube downloader - probably equivalents, I don't download from youtube so someone else may help with this one.
franz - no clue what this is
videostudiopro - what is this for, video editing? there are several video editors available in Linux
screen recording - yes, but I don't do this so not sure the app names
mailbird email client - tons of email clients available in Linux, never heard of this one.

Will GCleaner work on your os? There is no need to ever run any sort of "cleaning" software on Linux.

ms word got online, and google docs too should work.

Will GCleaner work on your os?            - no. not required; linux is fundamentally different

RE

You can run most windows apps with wine
Photoshop try gimp
microsoft word try freeoffice
mailbird email client try thunderbird. claws mail is superlight
videos you can download with youtube-dl or a browser plug in (video downloader)
