If your restore CD works, and you don't really have needs for playing games or absolutely must have programs that only work under Windows and you don't want to keep jumping into VirtualBox to get to them, then sure. I've been running the setup you are describing now for a while (XP instead of Vista) and I haven't seen a need to reload Windows as my primary OS yet.
