Running Linux Mint from Windows

I just downloaded and burned a copy of 64-bit Linux Mint 15 with the Cinnamon desktop onto DVD. When I insert the disc while running Windows 8, I was able to find the program that lets you run Linux Mint under Windows or from Windows itself. Virtualization! So I’m having second thoughts about not using Linux, now. I’ve found a manner of operating system installation that isn’t permanent — one can uninstall Linux Mint on Windows just like uninstalling an application.

I don’t know if Linux Mint’s virtualization performance will lag behind compared to Linux being installed on a partition the regular way. I shall find out soon enough!
