Well had similar experiences.

Let me tell you what happened: tried Ubuntu, Arch, OpenSUSE and Mint in VM - installed Mint for dual boot - started windows less and less - last xmas (!) I had enough and removed the stupid windows partition to make space for my steam games - now I am a very Happy Linux user Big Grin | :-D

I'm fine with this: Windows at work, Linux at home - besides VisualStudio I miss nothing on Linux - the other way ... well let's say I am at the point where I happily install emacs just to get eshell ^^

IMO if you are a programmer that is not married to Microsoft (you don't develop .net or work in an AD environment) then you should go for Linux - it's just the saner choice.
