I run Mint on a SSD, and then run Windows 8 in a VirtualBox window, 
pointing to my old spinny disk. (I wish I could turn off that 99% of the 
time).  The only downer is I get a 1024x768 window; rough on Visual 
Studio, but it works.

M$ Office violates just about every published Windows API.  I'd be 
surprised if that worked under wine.

Hmm, maybe it will for you if you have the right version of Visio.
