Depends on what you want to achieve. Get rid of MS forever, or stay
tied to MS. When you move to a knew operating system you will need to
understand new ways of doing things.

For websites I always encourage hand-coding. Get hold of Quanta and
ditch Dreamweaver. You might be thinking hand-coding no-way. Well that
is the next step, learn. There are a huge variety of websites and
email lists that can help. css-d and web-l are two such lists.

Photoshop is a good programme but much can be accompanied by The Gimp.

However, it is really hard to attempt to switch from one camp whilst
keeping a foot in the other. Why don't you consider dual booting and
trying out the programmes and Ubuntu. It might not be for you.
Kind regards
