Virtual Machine Vs Separate Partition

Why not do both and do some benchmarks ?

I use VMware on Linux and run Windows98 and XP there.

My other partition has Vista (OEM) but I need to dual boot to that OS,
Virtual is better as I can run my Windows98 legacy game in a window and do
my Qcad work on Linux in another.

Just a thought
