try dosemu. I personally haven't tried it, but from what I hear, it's next to flawless.

I just started using Linux on dual boot with winxp, and since Linux has been installed (3 weeks) I've not booted into Windows once.

I don't play games.
I have no sound and so no movie.
But I'm living without windows.

I do everything in linux.
I develop in C and C++ with GUI fltk
I am a teacher and all my studients develop and prepare article and report on linux platform
I write document with Lyx (scientific word) interface for latex
and of course sound, image, and many other things ...
Sometimes I run my machine as a server web and server nfs to give students a possibility to download files ..;;

I do a lot of graphics in 3Dsmax, so I doubt I can ever 100% convert. Can anyone offer any tips on this?

Even in Hollywood they use Linux more and more for 3D & related stuff, but I doubt that a lot of the software they use is Open Source. Maya and Houdini seem to be leading packages. Hey, The Lord of the Rings is made with Linux!
