hello all

i'm dual booting in my desktop pc in home, ubuntu, and windows

but now i finally decided to do a full migration to ubuntu in my laptop..

my only concerns are, how to migrate crucial info from one OS to the other.

for instance, i need help on "converting" all my email from windows mail, to another mail program, like thunderbird.

firefox bookmarks aswell.

is there any important stuff i have to remind myself to do, or to backup?

im using a hp laptop, wich has a separate partition for recovery.
if i install ubuntu, will i lose that recovery partition forever?

and by the way, wich programs you think are best to exchange for the windows programs?

just want to know what everyones oppinion on the matter is

if someone had the pleasure of going through that type of experience, i would gladdly appreciate any suggestions and tips.

many thanks
