If you want to isolate the two OS,
No. The whole thread is about safe data. Isolating OS is just one approach of many.
Even if malware/virus gets into the Windows Window (difficult to avoid), the next safeguard is that in my set up, zero data is stored there.

Cross platform malware is nothing new.

isolation is your idea and you even asked if the guru in this forum agree with this approach. I am not a guru but I don't agree with your approach for the reasons explained. If you still believe in your idea, I am all good with that. At least it provides one extra hurdle to the hacker.
