Okay, so you see no purpose. I see no purpose in limiting myself to using a whole host install of Windows, so I can use one or two Windows programs. Especially, when I can use them to full effect in a seamless Virtualbox that fits right into my host operating system.
Occasionally, I do some 3d design though that does require a full Windows installation. I dual boot for that. I even set it up, so that my mail client and other everyday applications are cross platform and share files, so when I switch between operating systems, I have the same settings and don’t miss a beat. Of course, it’s a lot uglier environment and is less user-friendly in Windows, but that’s the price we pay for needing those extra cpu cycles.
As we’ve discussed, to each his own. You’re happy, I’m happy. Smiles all around. Yet as you describe your configuration in your second paragraph, It just seems to me a fairly convoluted way of doing things, but if it suits your purpose, that’s fine.
Simple is for me. If Linux offered everything I need, I’d be happy to be a Linux user. It doesn’t though. So, I’m quite happy where I’m at. And, that’s fine as well.
Good chatting with you about this.
