In my opinion, the best solution is to run windows in a VM on top of Gnu/Linux.
Then you can boot into your favorite OS and do everything you need to do. And
when you have some task that you have not figured out how to do using free
software (yet), you can boot up the VM without having to shut down and reboot.
