You were the one who said you wanted to ditch Windows, that was YOUR desire, remember?
If you don't see a problem in PAYING FOR SERVICE, why didn't you? (Part of the price of a windows license is the "free support", and even then you might still need paid support)
I absolutely guaran-bloody-tee you, that if you go to a Linux board and say "Hey guys, where can I find a good consultant in my area, to help me get into Linux" ... yeah, you say that, and I guarantee you you'll get plenty of helpful advice.
Just because the OS is OS, it doesn't mean that you can't pay people for the time they spent learning it.
What kind of idiot would change OS without allowing for deployment costs, anyway?!? Deployment costs something, either your own time or the time of someone else.
Get a consultant to help you, end of story.
