I've decided not to put it off any longer. I've finally had enough of Windows. It's time for the big switch from my increasingly sluggish Windows XP machine to Linux.
I've had more Linux than Windows machines at home for ages, but have never really had the guts to use it as a regular desktop PC.
I'm pretty sure the transfer will leave me with a more stable working environment and I'm very sure that Microsoft don't really deserve my hard earned Sterling for the DRM/Spyware ridden Vista.
I'll probably still use Windoze for games until I can persuade Wine to play them, but for everything else, there's a viable Linux alternative.
So far, I've migrated my office documents, email (including GPG), contacts, calendars, instant messaging. I'm now working on getting my iPod working properly (it's already looking like I'll be able to sync my contacts and calendar easier than before).
I feel better already!
