I don't know if you'll ever read this.
I must apologize, my previous reply was a bit silly.
I'll tell you how I started with linux.
I was using Windows and I wasn't finding anything really wrong with it. But I was bored. Not a lot more to learn, and doing things like hacking the register wasn't really my cup of tea.
Then I came across an app called Iso Recorder. That was my big chance to finally try linux.
I absolutely fell in love with it: it was Mandrake.
But then things started to go wrong: crashes, hardware incompatibility, steep learning curve...
But I never gave up: I knew that one day linux would be more mature and that I would learn.
And that day did come: I have just recently got rid of my last, small Windows partition that i never used: since long it didn't feel like home any longer.
To be said that I am not very much of a gamer, and anyway the games available in linux are enough for me.
With linux you are encouraged to keep learning: everything is open and, IMHO, easier than Windows once you get the gist of it. On top of that you have tons of apps to try for free (about 16,000 in Debian), you have new distros coming out almost daily and linux keeps growing at an incredible fast rate: no boredom, guaranteed :-)
