Great. Good luck :)

One thing that I found useful in making the transition was to set
Linux as the default option in grub (I think this might be done
automatically nowadays anyway), so that even when I just needed to
quickly check a web page I was using Linux. The more that you use it,
even if you're just using firefox, the more opportunity you will have
to learn.
