	No offense, but *BSD != Linux, so the logic for asking that type of  
question here will most likely give you unfavorable responses.
	If you want simultaneous OSes, look into using an emulator like  
VMWare (usable on Linux, Windows), or VirtualPC (usable on Windows  
only), or try looking online for information about Wine if you want  
to run select Windows programs (requires a large degree of hacks to  
accomplish) on top of any POSIX enabled Unix operating system.
