Its not for everyone. What do you primarily do on your computer? Might be worth borrowing someone's linux machine and try some of the things you normally do.

I've been using linux exclusively for about 6 years, and it blows the doors off microsoft or osx or whatever commercial product you are using.  It will do any and all things that you would want a computer to do.  try a live CD - available from most major distros of linux - try Ubuntu, that is what I use, solid, reliable, easy to use

try it, or you'll never know!

Linux is pretty much for experienced computer users. But a distro called Ubuntu is reducing the difficulty of simple PC users using Linux. I used Linux exclusively for 3 or 4 months at a certain point on my laptop, and it was probably the best months I ever had on my laptop. But then I had to go back to Windows because everyone just wants to support the corporate devil known as Microsoft, and the programs I needed to use didn't have Linux support or the ability to emulate under Linux user the WINE windows capability layer.

You should probably give it a shot one day, but preferably on a separate partition so you don't destroy all of your data on your hard drive. You can resize the partition on your hard drive to make a new one. That would probably be worthy posting in another topic...because I don't want to go into the details about that. lol

there is really no need to dual boot anymore as alot of distros can run off live cd/dvd or flash/thumdrive, so you can still have your windoze runnin off HDD.
