Can't imagine why anyone would mess with dual boot these days with
something like Virtualbox available.

A windows licence might be tied to hardware, for example. So if I need occasional windows use (eg to update my satnav - grrrr!) but otherwise use linux, dual-boot is a necessity. Such a licence probably wouldn't work in a virtual machine.

I don't know about that but you can buy a license relatively cheaply for Windows 7 Pro.

haven't shopped for Windows 10. (at best I'd only purchase Windows 10 Pro because of the forced updates.)

Windows 7 Pro in a VM seemed to work fine with instant access to wifi, etc.
