I would definitively suggest to get rid of Windows, but if you don't
want or can't
do the big step there is no reason to do a dual-boot, a just create a
machine and you're done :)
Unless you don't have much RAM is the best solution, and there are even
virtual machines here:
so it doesn't really take long to set up something working :)
