Running Windows creates an entirely new set of unknowns.  Microsoft may have 
made malicious changes to your hardware without asking you.  

The last time I ran that other OS on hardware was on a school computer.  It 
and ACPI turned off my network card and did other nasty things each time 
Windows shut down.  To reenable the hardware, I had to hard kill Windows and 
boot GNU/Linux as the running system left it.  Given Bill Gates written 
intent to make ACPI "Windows only" and tables that lied to the Linux kernel, 
I was happy that it booted at all.  That was 10 years ago.  Hardware and 
Microsoft have gotten worse.
