Hi,
Yet another resounding yes: no need for virtual machines if you want to run
command-line tools such as Git, Python, PSQL (PostgreSQL) and others, as you
can do so thanks to Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) in 64-bit Anniversary
Update and later.

I've been aware of it for a while and soon expect to be in a position to try
it. For a full Linux installation (X Window System, server applications,
etc.), one still needs virtualization, but it's the command line and console
environment that I use most in Linux anyway.

The other option would be to run Windows 10 on a Linux host inside a KVM
virtual machine.
