Linux Tutorial - Linux and Windows - Easing the Transition to Linux
  Linux and Windows ---- Multi-Booting  

Easing the Transition to Linux

Unlike cigarettes and other drugs, it is unlikely that you will be able to get someone to quit using Windows "cold turkey". Instead you are going to wean them. That means giving them the chance to go back to Windows if they need to. You may also have a situation where someone needs a particular application that runs under Windows but not yet under Linux and there is no acceptable substitution. Either they have two machines or switch back and forth between, booting the system they need.

Once you have the right software and can access the necessary data , your users (or you yourself) can do their jobs. Being able to switch back to Windows, as needed, means you can avoid painful withdrawal symptoms. With the right look, users have the feeling that they are still in friendly territory. With access to all of the necessary data, there is nothing standing in the way of making the transition (at least slowly).
