I want to run Windows Vista 64bit (Eventually Windows 7) and Ubuntu on the same machine.
I want to play games and do graphic design in Windows. I want to write code, surf the internet, check email, and do everything else primarily on Linux.
Windows obviously can't be hosted in a VM since I want to do intense graphics stuff, but I was wondering if it would make more sense to go ahead and run a VM with Linux on it, which would require me to boot into Windows and and start the Linux VM every time. Or, If I should just dual boot, and boot into Linux about 80% of the time, and just restart when I need to use Windows.
I don't have much experience in this area and I'm leaning more towards dual-booting at the moment. Can you guys shed some light on the subject? Is it better to dual-boot or just run a Linux VM?
