I want to encourage you to stick with it and transition a little bit
at a time.  Keep windows around for your "real" work while you
experiment with debian.  As you become more familiar and comfortable
with your new system you'll gradually switch over for your daily

To start with, what is your current partition setup?  Do you have an
extra disk?  The best situation is if you have some spare partitions
or disks you can install debian on so that you can leave windows
alone.  The next best thing is if you can re-install windows -- first
repartition (which wipes everything out) then install both OSes.

In the meantime, you can start practicing using a unix-like
environment.  Go to www.cygwin.com and install cygwin (it is free).
You can then use bash, etc, and familiarize yourself with the shell
and the various utilities.  I'll note now, though, that cygwin is very
inferior to a real full-blown POSIX system like debian.  The first
problem they have is they have to run on a win32 system and maintain
full compatibility with pure win32 apps.  This becomes painful at
times!  Though with cygwin you can use mutt as your mailer!  It is
great!  You can ditch OE and use a decent tool even before you get
debian going.



Python is executable pseudocode. Perl is executable line noise.
