For my part, I almost never have to use Windows for anything other than
games. I have far too many games that wouldn't run with wine, and that I
simply can't live without.

It's also nice to be able to access the latest proprietary Windows video
codecs on occaisions, when I want to watch a movie trailer or something;
but I wouldn't keep Windows around just for /that/.

BTW, Bill: GRUB rocks. I've got Windows on a totally separate harddrive
from my Ubuntu system, which is on the primary (along with GRUB). Of
course, Windows wants to be on the primary, but with GRUB it's /soooo/
easy to simply swap the notions of "primary" and "secondary".... :-)
