  1. ? My OS can run everything it needs to. Windows can't. I like Paint.NET, but I don't *need* it. I do need the tools which Linux provides me.

  2. ... No? That's why I said "if"? .NET Core can compile for Linux. You don't need to know any specific codebase to know that. That'll do it. I didn't realize parts were written in C++; getting runtime-less languages to be cross-platform is quite a bit more difficult than something like .NET. No, but you must be, lol. WinForms and WPF have .NET Core implementations, from what I understand. Direct2D and DirectWrite are pretty impossible to get around, though.

If it's using winforms/wpf on .NET Framework there are guides published by Microsoft for migrating to .NET Core. .NET Framework isn't deprecated or anything
