Hi all...

I have been messing with Linux for a few years but not in a serious way... This time I aim to dump windows all together and I will be needing some help to get to grips with my new OS.....

I am sure this site is going to be a big help :)

4 - If you are a gamer, it's possible to run a lot of Windows games on Linux with Cedega:

there are also a couple of installers for Linux, so you can run a few games natively, such as Neverwinter Nights or Unreal. Here are some:

5 - Security is important. If you are not very familiar with firewall configuration in Linux/command line, here are some scripts:

6 - Remember to check out LinuxQuestions Wiki. A lot of good stuff is available in there:

Best Regards!
