WSL
OneDrive
Office 365 (It gives you the latest versions of all the office products, plus 1GB of OneDrive at a great price)
GitHub
OneNote (even though it could be better at some aspects)
Arc Mouse (it's not great for long-time use but it is ideal when you travel).

Also, I acknowledge that their **online **version of Outlook is great, even if I don't use it (I have a GSuite account). I hate the desktop app and the classic desktop Outlook.

My all-time favorite MS product, though, is Surface Pro. Moving from a classic laptop (I had a Macbook Pro and before that a Dell Inspiron) to a Surface was similar to what happened when I switched from a desktop to a laptop. After switching, I couldn't go back to the previous devices. Having a single device for everything and being able to use it as a tablet, a laptop and a desktop, depending on the occasion, is a must for me anymore.

I'm still looking for a replacement for OneNote, but I have yet to find it. I used to have a opensource program that did almost the same but it was structured with .md-files. But I can't remember the name of it... ><
