I use some really normal shit daily
waterfox - browser
uBlockOrigin, NoScript, Dark Reader, Cookie AutoDelete, Decentraleyes, SponsorBlock, Custom ScrollBar, Privacy Badger, Return Youtube Dislike - browser plugins that are always on
neovim - text editing and programming
godot - i'm making a game with my friends so :3
git - because of course i need version control!
nheko - matrix client for talking to my friends
ungoogled chromium - just open so i can use discord without the privacy nightmare of having the client on my computer, also for other web apps that may not work on waterfox
reaper - my personal choice of DAW, run it through a wine bottle sometimes in case there's some (possibly pirated) plugins I want to use
steam - i also run third party games through proton, it's That Good
alacritty (zsh) - personally choice of terminal emulator!
dolphin - it's the default for KDE and although I wanna get into tiling window managers, I'm lazy
besides that I just use everything else through my browser, Spotify, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp are all websites afterall.
Call me overly curious but how do you manage to run Reaper over Wine? It never works out for me, the VSTs I import do load but never show their GUI properly.

(don't worry about it)
I run it through Bottles! Which is a really shitty GNOME 3 desktop app that works really well (it runs on other DEs but get ready to deal with the GNOME 3 interfaces if you hate them). Bottles can be found here!: https://usebottles.com/download/
It may be a bit confusing, but what you want to do is create a REAPER Bottle then place the REAPER windows installer in your Downloads folder (it has to be Downloads). Run that .exe within the bottle, and REAPER will install itself to a virtual hard disk. Since I installed through flatpak, I access the virtual hard disk like ~/.var/app/com.usebottles.bottles/data/bottles/bottles/REAPER/drive_c. It has become necessary for me to create shortcuts to this directory because navigating that shit takes forever.
I only did this because I just want to use Neural DSP stuff in my DAW sometimes! Most Linux VSTs I import are totally fine.
