On a somewhat related note, I use andLinux http://www.andlinux.org/ as my preferred method of dual OS.  Ever since I had to send my laptop in for service (for two months), I have been to lazy to re-install Ubuntu.  With andLinux I can run all my linux apps just by double clicking the apps an icon on the desktop.

So if you are setting up a windows machine primarily for BB development, at least you can still have access to the apps you like.
