Run Windows and Linux without virtualization

This is actually a very big deal! Those of you who are dissing this software have no idea and are simply not picking up on some of the clues being discussed here. It is not an emulator which is nearly useless but uses the computer's hardware and works in cooperation with Windows.

It has opened up a whole new opportunity for some of us who need to use both Windows and Linux software and I'm not talking about desktop applications, I am talking about real engineering applications. These can cost an arm and a leg in the Windows world but are free in Linux! This is huge. I'm guessing it has saved me roughly $100,000 on just my machine alone, never mind all the other machines that can now be loaded with some first rate software and still be used in the normal windows mode.
