Who'd want to do that?

Actually I use wine with a few windows games. There are a few applets that are 
also useful also with the linux.

The only thing I really need windows for is music production because I use 
hardware with no alsa support and software with no linux equivalent as of 
yet. I am experimenting with various windows programs that might just work 
with wine for music and such. For example, tracktion almost works in wine. 
harbal, a mastering tool works almost perfectly in wine and will, I have been 
told, have a native linux version in the near future.

Everything else, forget windows.
