As with everything, the hard part is the first step. Start small and improve every day. You can just install Linux in dual boot so that you still have Windows available. That way:

  1. have some time, install Linux
  2. go back playing on Windows or whatever
  3. have some time, try browsing the web on Linux (notice it's not very different from Windows)
  4. go back playing on Windows or whatever
  5. have some time, install Steam on Linux, try some games (notice lots of games run on Linux (including all of Valve))
  6. go back playing on Windows (some still not run on Linux) or whatever
  7. have some time, learn a simple command to type in the terminal for that one problem you thought was too specific to solve automatically (notice that, on Windows, you would need to find a program for this specific purpose)
  8. go back running that one thing that still run only on Windows or whatever
  9. have some time, ticker with the command line (notice that it's pretty cool, even if people think you're hacking the Matrix)
  10. go back running that one thing that still run only on Windows or whatever (notice how everything is so clunky, slow and eats your RAM)
  11. go back to Linux, install Wine for that one thing, and ditch Windows
