Run Windows and Linux together simultaneously

"With the latest release of VirtualBox, Windows and Linux can be run together simultaneously, and you don't even need to switch between the two. Using the seamless Windows feature of VirtualBox, you can run two different operating systems simultaneously on a single PC and you can use the applications of both operating systems from the same desktop simultaneously.

This has been made possible by the combined efforts of VirtualBox and SeamlessRDP that is meant for seamless Windows support for rdesktop. The rdesktop, ie, the remote desktop feature helps in creating X11 Window for each Windows application that you will run from the host machine, further the application that is running can be moved and resized."
