what you need to start looking at is setting up a dual boot system, so that 
you can still do the rudimentary necessities on windon't and also get to 
spend time on your own linux system, learning what you need to know to make 
the transition. as much as many of us wish that a certain part of the anatomy 
hadn't had to suffer the many years of brutish enslavement to bill, nobody 
expects you to make the transition in a day. maybe nobody told you, but not 
only is it possible to have both a real operating system and that other crap 
reside on the same computer, but if there were an honest count of all those 
on the list who still have the other crap on their systems, even if in many 
cases it hasn't been booted in a long-ass time, you might be surprised by 
that number.
