It really depends on how you want to use your machine. Alot of things will run in WINE on linux. But if you are a big gamer, stick with Windows. You can install Linux into a virtual machine with Virtual Box and try it out for awhile, so you don't have to partition/format.

I do everything but game, lol

I need to be able to use lots of "internet" apps, and not being as familiar with linux, i am not sure how hey would work

I love the deep web, tor, etc.. I spend my spre time on hackthissite.org and shit like that just for fun and to learn

I need to be able to use many programs related to things of that nature.. proxifer, etc...

I watch lots of tv and movies on the net, but not really any gaming. I am not a huge gamer, but I use my ps3 when I do.

Thanks for all the input friends!!

I think Linux would be a good fit! Anything internet related works exactly the same. You may not be able to find ALL the same programs you use, but will almost definitely find open source alternatives to them. You can dual boot Windows and Linux without having to repartition anything. Just decide which distro you want and there are instructions on how to do a dual boot install. Also, almost all distros have a live cd version you can use to test things out before installing. Just download and burn to a CD or to a flash drive and reboot. Have fun!

Awesome, thanks!

And I would just like to add before people get the wrong Idea... Yes I love the internet and learn from al of the info on it.. everywhere. but as far as the "hacking" type nonsense is concerned, I am not a hacker. I just like picking up new tricks for fun and also knowing how people do what they do so I know how to defend or get around it.
