Final Thoughts on Windows 8

I have been watching videos, tutorials, and even Windows Hacks for a while now and I have to say I am impressed by what Windows 8 can do. I still prefer Linux and Mac over Windows 8 but, its getting better and I look forward to the launch date. Image Source: Flickr

I am about to set up a virtual box and install a copy of the preview on my system. I plan on running some tests and see how well it runs and get familiar with the new OS. Hopefully I will have a tutorial on how to install Windows 8 on a virtual machine in the next few weeks.
