You might find that the two partition method will allow you to run
all those software packages without difficulty on a Linux partition
and yet have an MSWin XP partition for those programs that run
only on that OS. In fact I have several partitions but I almost
never use the Windows one. One useful program, Quantas, won't
run on Slackware Linux 13 so I keep a Slack 12.2 partition around
just for that one app.
I have a Win XP install disk and key. For my purposes I see no
reason to upgrade to Win 7. Can anyone suggest one?
Vista is of course another story.
