    I am getting a win 8 iso file and wanted to know how the very Beta Win 8 install went. Are there any issues beyond the fact that it is an early beta? Is it working?

    Thanks, in advance.

    I've installed the Windows 8 dev preview on VMWare Fusion 4, Parallels 7, and Boot Camp. In all cases it was able to be installed correctly and without too many issues. However, I found that the virtual machines' performance were somewhat lacking. But, I guess that's what you get with a virtual machine. I finally chose Boot Camp because it is free and has the greatest performance.

    I installed the Win8 dev preview on Fusion 4.1....I read somewhere that the VMWare tools weren't compatible, so after the uneventful install, I didn't download and install the VMWare tools, it seems to be working fine without them installed (for my limited playing around with the preview anyway).
