There is a saying: "there is no zealot like a convert."

Sounds like you are in the early stages. Take a few deep breaths, wait
a few weeks, it'll pass.

Remember the first axiom of computing: all software sucks. All
operating systems suck, all programming languages suck, all
applications suck.

Linux has different faults, but it has faults. At least it's free and
gets you out of the cycle of proprietary upgrades, though.

Sure you can single-boot your PC with just Ubuntu, no problem. It's
very easy, just remove all existing partitions as you install. But
remember, all your existing data will go away, too. So keep copies of
it off the computer on external disks - ideally, 2 or 3 copies, in
case one of those disks dies.

And you can get little Ubuntu stickers to cover the Windows logo if
you want. :-) It's a fun idea - I just did it to mine.
