What  advantage  you  feel/get  by  running  a  win  application  thru
GNU/Linux. Most of the general purpose softwares are in GNU world. Why
can't you use the native tools.  Or is it a specific application which
you have no alternative in GNU world. Then you have 2 choices

1. write your own program to do the task Or hire somebody to do this
2. stick to the win world itself

My 2 paisa. YMMV.
