What is the point?
Is restart too slow?
Do you need to play some windows game while doing some serious stuff?

fabianrios, let's also state the obvious, have you heard of wine?
(just checking). I had the exact same question before starting linux,
and then I realised this is what most linux users would object to.
It is better to look for alternative software etc.
Anyway, we also forgot to mention XEN.

Now, I think most of the usual culprits have been listed
