Thanks for your thorough description of what you went through during your week on Linux. Reading your posts Linux seems to have improved significantly the last few years to an OS which can be used by the average computer user with about the same functionality and user-friendliness as a Windows installation.
Hopefully you will come back in a few weeks telling which percentage of the time time you then spend on the Windows side of the dual-boot system, and which percentage on the Linux side. My experience is that because of the larger number of mature applications for Windows, I always tend to go back to the Microsoft part of my dual-boot system, even if I don't really want to.
