If you can run Knoppix on this PC, you should be able to run FREEDUC
also.(Read the article on PLUG website about the same)

You dont need to goto Windows for anything. FREEDUC should be more
than sufficient for you.
Damn small linux could also be another choice fi you want to try out
different appliations for similar functionality.
