I am thinking about switching to Linux, coming from Windows 10. I am an illustrator, so currently I use Photoshop CC 2015 mostly, and sometimes also use Krita (3.0 is coming out, yay), Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, Illustrator, Clip Studio Paint, Blender for 3D stuff, software for illustrators. I also need to use my Wacom Intuos Pro properly.
So my question here is: Is elementary OS a good OS for this kind of things? I mean, does it handle this types of activities well?
What made me find this OS was its simplicity and beauty. And I am looking for something like that, but that gives me (someone who doesn't know coding and wouldn't like to use Command Line Interface) a system able to handle my work. So another question comes: can I set the icons I want to show on the dock? I know there is no place for icons on the desktop area, but if I can set the icons of the softwares I install on the dock, there is no problem for me. Actually I find it more elegant.
I am looking for an OS that runs smoothly, that gives me a "beautiful light environment", like a blank and yet functional canvas, where I can put my artist's softwares and just DRAW, without interference. Is elementary OS the one to go?
I am currently switching my mind from elementary OS, Manjaro, and Mint, so any comments from you guys make here will help me a lot in my decision.
