Hi Hartmut,

I can sympathise with you on this one...

There are a few options...

there is a python based "bake" make like program... that is useful...

then there is Wine... that is a windows emulator under linux... that 
might be pretty easy....

If you want to get more heavy-weight, then get a virtual machine.

But as per your question... the above specified options might satisfy 
your requests for speed and ease of use without having to change O/S.
