Actually, the main impetus for the switch came when my user profiles under Windows got corrupted and there was no way to recreate them without reinstalling it.

The end result is good (you ditching Windows) but this is incorrect. Safe mode, delete the profile directory in C:\Users, then reboot and log in. The user profile will rebuild. Of course, all your shit is gone unless you backed it up first, but even then you still have to put things back and fix your settings again.
