I understand how that feels. I felt that way the first time I tried BeOS
in 1999. I was amazed that my computer could do nearly everything I
wanted to without having to use Windows. Then a friend on a mailing list
persuaded me to try Linux, since then, I never had a need to even touch
anything else again :)

Having said that, I tried ReactOS a few months ago and I was quite
impressed with it. It will be nice once they adopt things like APT, then
you have an open source Windows clone with a lot of the benefits of
GNU/Linux :)
