The alternative, of Linux in the VM, gives you the joy of making Linux's
performance and stability hinge on that of MS-Windows, underneath it.
Some folks think that's fine.  Good luck to 'em.

That sort of scenario might be useful and necessary in cases where the
host OS has useful drivers for cutting-edge hardware, and the guest OS
doesn't.
