I did it myself once and have read a lot about others doing the same.
It's just straightforward: point Wine to where all the applications
are. No dual installation for dual booting.

Likely a good idea.
BTW., to get a single-installation, dual-booting setup working, a
virtual machine is the appropriate tool: VirtualBox, VMware. Getting
a single Windows installation to boot two different hardwares is a
bit tricky, but it works.
