Before embarking on this course, I suggest you see if there are native 
linux applications  which will do the jobs for you - take a look at this 

If there are no suitable equivalents for the software you wish to run, I 
recommend VirtualBox, which from version 1.5 also includes built-in 
"seamless" windows so that you can run windows applications under a 
virtual machine and have them look like native Linux apps.
