Well that's a fairly different use-case, since it's all one user's
working copy (you are the user). Are you having a problem with your
current setup? It seems sensible -- the only thing you might be able to
improve on is never actually rebooting to Linux. Can you trust the
VMware emulation?

You're right that committing changes "to yourself" doesn't make sense,
especially with a slow link to your repository. Have you thought about
svk? It sounds like it might do what you want.
