In my experience, you will not be able to live without your windows...
Unless you have some 1.5+ Gigs of RAM and install and VMWare'd copy of 
Windows ...
In this case, you can "survive", and gradually get rid of the "bad 
windows habbits and applications".

Installing wmware is not very difficult, this is a tutorial:

And this is a "patch" when installing wmware in kubuntu feisty

Nevertheless, my personal experience, being with Linux in servers and 
desktop for over 3 years now, it is worth the time... freedom, 
powerfulness, lack of viruses, statibility, money when deploying in 
customers, ...

Good luck
