Came across this news today…one among many articles that can be found:
One of my personal plans eventually is too set up a dedicated box running some linux distro for Houdini,
solely to squeak out better use of memory, compared to windows.
Of course having a dual-boot system can serve my needs.
But I am wondering if SideFX is looking at seeing how this new Windows development might be able to be taken advantage of for Houdini?
Is better OS memory management possible? Other potential benefits?

The main issue I have with dualboot is licensing. Unfortunaley linux and windows on the same machine generate different server codes.
not a problem with floating licenses, but with nodelock this is at least unfortunate
From Houdini 17 or 17.5 sidefx gives the second license for dual boot purpose.
