Depends on your primary platform:

If you have a requirement that your HW run Windows (i.e. company provided
system), .. you should run your Linux apps in VMs.

If you do NOT have a requirement to run Windows on HW, there is no reason
NOT to run you Windoze apps in VM, .. or *containers* (e.g. SQL Server).

Partially dependent on your 'environment' of choice - for example, I spend
90% of my time at the command line, and there is no way to create a normal
CLI environment on Windoze, i.e. a CLI environment that is native on the
machine, with a normal toolset such as systemd, /var/log, ...
