This is the best advice out there with regards to BootCamp/Parallels. Zoolook hit the nail on the head, if you load Windows from the get-go, then you are likely to use that crutch more and more often and never get the hang of OS X.
I advise people to wait at least a month or two before putting Windows on their Macs.
Many people claim they are "sick of Windows" and bought the Mac because they wanted a change, something fresh, something different... why then would they ruin that opportunity for something new by immediately mucking it up with the very OS that they were trying to "escape" from?
