I hav enever used those technologies (I don't have Windows) but from
gut feeling I think that having a real dual boot, or a single boot
with Windows in VirtualBox, would be best. Running Linux inside of
Windows sounds like having the terrible application selection of
Linux, with the terrible stability and resourcefullness of Windows. A
lose-lose situation.
