Out of interest SwampRabbit, amongst the Windows programs you have to use, is there anything that you could not do as well with Linux software, if you had the freedom to use MX at work instead?
technically as long as you have open-format-compatibility (non-free but generally more popular) , you should have no problem . i myself use MX at work .

i must say it here , the only thing bad about MX is , it spoils me rotten . so much so the linux mentor that makes me choose mx instead of mint told me to try minimal-install-devuan . the OS wonderful , the community wonderful , the ideals too are wonderful .

It's a perfectly boring distro. No issues, no problems to solve, no interruptions to deal with the OS in the middle of my work. Boorrrrrinnnnng. That's exactly what I need!

All my college coursework (so far) has been done in LibreOffice, saved in Microsoft format and/or pdf file format to fully retain my special formatting, including the awesome selection of wicked-kewl fonts available in MX!

@asqwerth , gee thanks! I've seen everyone lingering around except for BitJam, where's he at?
I messaged him, but his profile says he hasn't been on in few days.

He's still involved in development but too busy to visit the forum much.

No worries at all, I figured as much especially with both antiX and MX.

Just wanted to see how the PC he built before I went on my hiatus, is still holding up for him, it would make me feel good to know something I helped him with is still being put to good use.

MX Linux & antiX aren't that good of distros < because they are boring and don't break and I don't have to do anything, my time is boring and everything configured, no need to search Google for any problems and forum is so helpful >
