I have read a lot of stuff in here, and learnt one hell of a lot a stuff in a short, but one dithering theme seems to be etched in any Linux forum:-

MicroSoft Windows conversion/look like (how to, what to, can you etc.)=8^(_)

I purchased (and am lucky enough to have a second machine) Linux o/s as a stand alone and I think it is excellent...

My next (new, if money if forthcoming)machine is having Linux as the o/s.

Keep MicroSoft machines MicroSoft.  Keep Linux, well, Linux, and don't try to emulate !

Well there is one other option... Take a look at VMware (http://www.vmware.com). I find it absolutely fantastic and worth the cost. I don't have anything that boots a microsoft OS anymore. Everything is either a Linux or Solaris native system. But I've still got access to an ms OS anytime I need it (and I've got to apps, Avery LabelMaker (w/3of9 barcodes) and an electronic timesheet that only work on windows) . An added benefit is that the windows installation is just a file as far as Linux is concerned and it can be backed up & restored, or copied to another system. If that system has VMware installed, you can run that windows installation. Oh yeah, I've had RedHat 6.1, win95, and NT all up at the same time on one of my fast/big boxes.
