    Have you ever run a Linux OS? It's not plug and play like Windows is, just so you know. Running it on a server is one thing, trying to do all that you do now in Windows is a totally different story. I'm running Raspbian on my Raspberry Pi and its been a steady uphill climb. I am in no hurry to jump from Windows to Linux. I don't see ever doing it to be honest.
    The newbie-friendly Linux distros are plug-n-play (Ubuntu, Linux Mint), as long as your hardware is old enough.

    That said, LINUX IS NOT WINDOWS! It's as different as Windows is from Mac OSX, and isn't as newb friendly as either. But I'm dual booting Windows and Arch Linux on my laptop...using Openbox WM on Arch, and it's so lean and fast!

    I got newer hardware and I am running a triple boot system right now. My system is a Dell. Windows 7, Windows 10 preview and Xubuntu.

    I've only used Linux a few times on PC hardware. Older PC's that had an unsupported version of Windows on them. I tried a couple of Linux Distro's on them like Puppy and it just ended up in frustration trying to get all the hardware working. Especially networking/WIFI. YMMV I guess. I'm currently running Raspbian on my Pi because there aren't a whole lot of options. It works for the Pi including WIFI out of the box. Doing anything else though seems to be endless apt-get terminal commands. All I can say is, nothing I've seen makes me want to jump ship from Windows to Linux any time soon. I'd have to be between a rock and a hard place to make me do it. That's just me though. If you like it more power to you.
