I think as long as you stay away from McAfee and Norton, you will be ok
I know you said not to.. but I don't mind security essentials at all and will also second Vipre. I've only recently been exposed to the latter
Either way, if you have been wanting to try Linux.. do it! Make a bootable USB with something like linuxmint and go to town. You really don't need
anything like a PhD and its intimidation factor usually is from experiences long ago.
Personally, I log into windows more often than not for software, but I can't wait for the day when I can stop. I actually dig windows 10 quite a bit
more than I ever thought I would, but still prefer Linux when no other factors are considered.
