Hi raju,
I was thing of a hack. 
a key combo X that can be used on Debian and
a key combo Y on windows that is not used,
find X and Y with the best solution where X=Y
so if you can assign alt-tab on windows to something else, that that may
allow the key to go to Debian. other wise, use say 'f12' to send 'f12'
where 'f12' on debian does the switch. Or other fun hacks.
