Well, I've decided to have a go with moving over to Linux through the use of Kubuntu, and to keep my Windows-based programs I've even learned how to use WinE... :D

But it's still downloading at the moment so I'll have to decide when I have a go with Kubuntu on a spare hard drive... :D

I had a small run with Lindows, now called Linspire, but found that it wan't really any quicker then XP and there was a distinct lack of free programs available.

I've installed it without any hitches on my spare 30GB hard drive and I'm using it right now, and I like it so far... :D
