My hypochondria over the security of Windows finally got the best of me. I switched to Linux last night. I'm using the latest Debian with the Gnome environment. The switch was fairly painless and I now have everything running exactly the way it was under Windows. WoW performs well in WINE (a Windows compatibility layer made for Linux). There is only a very slight degradation in performance that I can tell. All of my other apps were easy to find on Linux. My brother is experienced with Debian so he helped with some stuff like setting up my software raid.
