VBox for Linux
#3
It depends on how new the machine is as to its performance.  The latest tech can allow you to achieve close to hardware speed via passthroughs, however this must be setup in a specific way for 95%+ bare metal speed.

The biggest issue is Windows is the host OS and thus your system is more at risk for security and privacy issues.  In general if don't need Photoshop, CAD, Video processing on Windows it is better security and privacy to go the other way around with Linux as the host and Windows as the guest.

You'll gain much better virus, spyware, malware, and privacy protections.  Plus you can snapshot Windows so when a bad update or virus hits you just restore the snapshot.
