Linux as a user's desktop is a wonderful experience. Beyond your imagination.
Fedora KDE is like windows but heavy at times, task bar is at the bottom and themes available right from the desktop, which make it quite a surprise at the first look.

Fedora Default spin, I used Fedora 15 and got sick of it as I had to do a lot of mental work with it, and it was just an additional overhead, so I switched to other spins, like KDE, Xfce.

Xfce has taskbar on top of the screen, I just wanted it to be at the bottom, but this is how it is. Quite a good one actually. As simpler and developers should use it.

I have used ubuntu as well, and it's like Fedora 15, as I don't have laptops and LCD's so that was a bit too much for me, though I have a 19 inch monitor. Older versions of Ubuntu were good. As Kde.

Installation of Linux, could not be made simpler, download live image, FedoraUbuntu, to the USB, boot, install and you will be able be dual booting. Hardly takes more than five minutes.
  • '/' This will be the root partition of your system.
  • 'swap' This will be the swap space.
  • and boot partition. 
  • You can opt to make /home. 
Linux hardly two or three commands: 
  • 'su --' will give you root access to your system, and there you are, ready to empower your thoughts.
  • Add the software repositories: RPM Fusion Repositories.
  • 'yum update' immediately after installation. This will update all packages to the latest.
Microsoft in very few scenarios, as in Office Products. What if tomorrow you have to come up with a Web Sites Tabular Data into an Excel Sheet Or Something like whole web pages being captured into a word document.
