[rescue] Blastwave

I have used sunfreeware for about 5 years and have been satisfied. However, at 
home for about a year I used Debian linux and was impressed with the apt-get 
package handler. Based on that I am willing to give Blastwave a try. So here are 
my questions:

 1) What pain am I asking for when jumping into the middle of Blastwave when I 
have so many packages already installed and
 2) is there any downside if I decide after a bit that Blastwave is not for me 
and wish to resume my old ways?

I guess it boils down to, "can I try out Blastwave with out getting blasted?"
