The usefulness of this reply will depend on your use of windows (especially 
how much/often):
I have a similar problem since Visual Studio only runs on Windows and I'm 
forced to use it. Because of this, I have a Windows VM which runs VS and 
cohorts. This has the advantage of me being able to use both Windows and Linux 
in parallel.
Obviously stuff like 3D graphics don't work so well, so if you want to play 3D 
games, this won't help much.

Just something for you to think about...
