Truth be told, many, if not a majority, of Linux users dual boot, or run
Windows in a virtual machine. I use the latter choice, and run both XP and 7 in a virtual machine.

I have found that most simple windows programs will work well in wine for Linux. The simpler the program the better. Usually the more complex a program is the harder it is to get to run in wine.

You can opt to do it the other way around too, and run a Linux virtual machine on windows. Here are three different ways to use Linux directly in Windows.
