Lately I've been haveing some trouble with the Windows Xp on my laptop so I thought about switching to Linux. I use my laptop mostly for programming, writing documents, and browsing the web. Is there any good reason for me not to use linux? I dont want to make a stupid mistake and erase my windows installation only to discover that I can't get anything done with linux. So can anyone give me some good reasons not do switch? (the web is filled with reasons to switch, I'm looking for reasons not to). Thanks.
