For WIN games, there is dual boot.

For everything else there is VirtualBox. (or WINE)

My WIN XP VM restores from 'saved machine state' in under 4 seconds. I have enough RAM to leave it permanently running, though I dont.

That's way quicker than rebooting to windows, which might be at least a minute, and with no possibility of cutting and pasting between linux/windows environments.
