I want to run applications in both Windows and Linux at the same time. I have not tried this before so I would like timely advice about this scenario. I would like to know if there will be a performance issue if I run Windows and Linux applications on the same computer.

Hello,

Linux and Windows – both are different platform. You can’t run them both at the same time. But via VirtualBox’s virtualization technique, you can achieve the task easily.

First of all, download and install VirtualBox. Then, install the Linux on a new virtual PC in VirtualBox. Learn how to install Linux in VirtualBox.

Next, it’s time to get the required software on both of your system. Some developer(s) develop software for both Linux and Windows platform. If you can get the Linux edition of your software, it’s good. Install the Linux edition in your virtual Linux PC. If couldn’t find Linux version of the software, you can run the Windows application on Linux using Wine. Get Wine. Wine is able to run several Windows apps on Linux but can’t play all.

The same EXE file can be run on Windows as well. Now, you’ve got your software on both of your Windows and Linux.
