I was 100% windows free for a few years and then had to go back to dual booting for work. Stupid software won't play nicely when windows is installed as a guest OS, wine.... doesn't work either.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think dual-booting works best when Windows is the original, Linux second. I've been able to get most everything working under Ubuntu - either with an open source alternative (OpenOffice, etc.) or with wine - so I stopped dual-booting several years ago. I may not be the authority on this, in other words.
