Well, running Windows program within Linux can make your system unstable. If you exchange alot of files between Linux & Windows systems, it would be a good idea to run an antivirus program on the linux system. The virus may not affect linux but it can be transferred to a Windows system.
It just doesn't make sense to me to start using Linux and then want to run Windows programs with it. That is one reason for a dual boot setup or Virtualbox setup.
Just my thoughts!
