Why don't you get a virtual machine (VirtualBox) installed in your
Ubuntu and have Windows in there until you get more familiar with
Linux? Or even for those few times you might really need it (who
knows... SQL Server, whatever). I know many people who were successful
with this approach.

Now, regarding one point you cited, SQLyog, have you ever tested MySQL
Workbench? Take a look: http://dev.mysql.com/workbench/?page_id=35
