Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

When I bought my new laptop back in August of 2008 for college, It had Vista and I totally wiped that shit clean and installed Ubuntu. Although I needed Windows for in class and DOS for labs, I knew that I just could not stand that eerie feeling of using Vista.
(By the way: I failed my DOS classes because I wanted to use Unix commands)
Here is a compiled list from a LinuxQuestion posting (will be update accordingly):
6. Surf the internet, download files, pick up email without fear of the computer becoming infected with viruses, malware, etc. Linux - yes. Windows - it is possible to run as limited user which can limit malmare, but from my experience, it is difficult to use a Windows system as a limited user, and most people probably don't.
5. Ressurect old computer and use it as firewall, server, etc....
