I would rather go other way around: install FreeBSD on bare metal, and run
MS Windows, say, under VirtualBox. MS Windows is "bloated pig" (my friend
sysadmin started saying that when Windows 2000 was released), Linux makes
huge steps in that same direction, FreeBSD would be slimmer than either of
them (sorry if I am wrong, there definitely is an expert on the list who
will correct me  then). Hence, I prefer to run FreeBSD on my laptop, and
all others live in VirtualBox virtual machines. That makes me use hardware
efficiently, and being able to use other systems when my sysadmin duties
call for that and I don't have anything else but laptop in hands.

Just my $0.02.
