Yes. There is software to allow you to run Windows
from within in Linux but it is usually quite pricey
and requires some knowledge to fiddle with to get it
running properly. VM Ware is one, I think Jono uses it
so he can test his web development in Internet

Yes :) It comes with the usual suspects like Open
Office, Mozilla, KDE 3 etc and loads of other stuff.
It is very good.

W H Smith usually stock Linux Format, Linux User is ok
but a bit techy for beginners, stuff like streaming

This is because stuff either works or just doesn't
work. Unlike Windows where you often get stuff that
just works some of the time.




Use Linux. Because it's better.
