It can be worth your time if theres stuff in linux you need that Windows cant provide and vice versa.
Doing it just because you can ? Each to their own :)

Personally, Id RAID the drives and just run Windows - thats me tho....

Just install virtualbox on your win machine. Install ubuntu VM on virtualbox.
