Wil Wheaton of Star Trek: TNG fame (or infamy, if you prefer) has posted some thoughts about his recent wholesale conversion to Linux. It's a good read for any of you who might be thinking about taking the plunge but aren't sure.

We feel afraid, because even though we're pretty sure that everything is going to work out fine, we've existed on a steady diet of FUD for many years. Maybe we tried to install a distro a few years ago, when Linux wasn't as newbie-friendly as it is now. Maybe we're just a bunch of pussies.
I'll admit it: I was nervous.
