s/into getting a Linux machine/into wiping Windows and installing Linux/
Seriously, though, for some people, for reasons I cannot fathom,
deleting Windows altogether is not an option. Anyway, if making the
switch is too hard for you to do on your "main computer", and you want
to buy a new computer for Linux, there are some options available that
really level the playing field, so to speak, and take the mystery
of installation and support out of the equation:
Also, I highly recommend LinuxMint: http://www.linuxmint.com/
I could go on, and will, but only by request.
 Actually, I *can* fathom some specific circumstances which, as it
turns out, apply to far fewer people than most people realize.
 It really is an option. Don't let fear prevent you from switching.
 Most comparisons of Linux to Windows include the installation and
setup part. I think this is a bit unfair (to Windows, actually). But
if you have two machines, Windows and Linux, *already installed and
set up*, so that all installed hardware is working properly, then
Linux is really very easy to use. As easy as Windows, at least.
 And in the footnotes
 Note that "different", which Linux is from Windows, does not mean
"harder to use".
 Ah, I just like footnotes :)
