I dont know if this is posible, but could you run both Linux and Windows at the same time (using virtual macheins), and use the Linux enviroment but run Windows apps in their native enviroment?

I've tried wine on ubuntu but it didn't work with everything. I think he wants something that he knows will work with his window apps.

</div>Does it give you 100% native compatibility, though? I would be implimenting this on my sig rig, so I would think it could make up for speed losses caused by the dual operating enviroments.

Xen is the fastest with 80% original speed, VMware is not far behind.<br />

Yes you can use either to run Windows and you can switch between Linux and Windows. Depends on which one your using though I think.
