I'm using linux for maybe a year and more, and there's not much to dislike, Other than the lack of games and software support. That's the only reason i'm still sticking with windows, the software support.
But, Linux is Really good. It is polished, it is educational, it is customizable, and lastly it is secure.
And if you want to test linux before settling on a particular one, you can take a USB and create a 'Live CD' and try linux. It is really useful feature. Download a distro and check out if it suits your need or not.
I personally use Ubuntu (as secondary) and it never disappointed me grin.gif.
The point to remember is that no OS is perfect. Windows has its drawbacks, Linux has its own angel.gif ..
