This is not going to be popular here,
but I would definitely keep Windows XP on one partition,
and set up a dual-boot Linux + Windows system.

There are many programs that either don't run at all under Linux
or that run much better under Windows.
(I just updated my ThinkPad T43 BIOS under Windows -
I doubt if that would have been possible under Linux.)

I use Linux 99% of the time,
but still keep a Windows partition on each of my computers.
