All-in-all can Linux be used as a normal OS? Yes, and it actually makes more sense to than to not in some situations.  It definitely has it's caveats and can seem a little bit intimidating at first but I promise, if you can learn to use Windows or OSX there is no doubt you can learn to use Linux too.
