I'll give you a penny for your thoughts if you offer your two cents on linux, or in other words I'd like to hear what everybody here thinks of it before I decide to get it, and then you'll owe me a penny! mwa ha ha.

I dabble with Ubuntu, but I am no expert at Linux and the last person you would want to ask for advice.  While it provides a decent amount of things you can do and is user friendly, I find there are things I miss that I have in Windows (petty things really - iTunes, Photo editors I am comfortable with, video editors I am comfortable with, DVD ripping software).  Still I dabble with it because it is interesting enough, but that is about it.  I am not yet ready to commit to it as my primary OS... and truth be told, I put my Linux PC in the basement and since it is colder than heck down there I have not booted it in over a month or so.

There are alternatives for Linux though... I am just not pleased with the offerings at the moment.... and some Windows apps can be run on Wine.
