I will be getting a Windows 7 machine at work soon. I want some of the software that Windows offers (i.e. Office, iTunes), but I develop software in Linux. Should I install Linux on a virtual machine with Windows 7 as the host (either via Windows own software or VirtualBox), or should I install a Linux partition and run Windows 7 in a virtual machine, with Linux as the host (assuming I have the Windows 7 disk)? Is the latter even possible?
On the Linux side I'll be running OpenSuSE 11.2 and above, and the software I'm developing uses OpenGL and the Qt SDK.
As mentioned earlier, on the Windows side I'll be running Office and iTunes primarily.
I can do web-browsing on either.
