First, Microsoft open sourced Powershell, and are making bash available in windows.

These 2 worlds will collide.

I am in the SAME boat as you. Love/hate relationship with Linux (love its stability, hate trying to figure out which command to use, although I just google it). I have a synology raid. unzipping files on the raid, to the raid was way to slow. I used SSH, and did a local unzip. OMG I was convinced. I reduced literally days of network traffic to about an hour of a shell.

I downloaded a virtual box VM, and took an online class that walked me through it. It really helped.
I am still horribly rusty. But I think it is worth learning. To be honest, you have invested thousands of hours into doing things in windows. You are going to have to invest a few hundred hours into this. And I think it makes you better at things.

There are some things I actually prefer doing in linux now. In fact, I started writing Python so I can run my scripts on different OSes easier.
