I can attest to this - I've been using Ubuntu since I was 12 (14.04 LTS), and because I could mess around with stuff, I learned so much about scripting, build tools, how OSes work at a deeper level, disk management, graphics drivers, etc. This helped propel my love for programming - It's a great Idea to switch to linux, but I would suggest dual-booting when possible, because support for MS Office isn't that good in Linux, even with Wine, etc.

There is the linux subsystem for Windows, that way you can use linux in Windows with no dual boot.
