The switch will not be particularly easy. You will have to learn UNIX.

I started running Linux back in Spring, 2000, while I continued 
running Windows.

In about 2003 I started learning FreeBSD because my web host was using 
that OS.

Now, I am hosting my own web/mail server with OpenBSD,  and have 
FreeBSD on a Desktop machine.

I still do maintain a Windows 2000 machine for my graphics 
workstation, and to run my vintage DOS apps.

Over the past seven years, I have become considerably less ignorant 
about computer, operating systems, networks, etc.

This is, in my opinion, a very, very, very good thing... but easy???
