    Awesome!!! See, now this is where windows 8 pro comes into play. This is the perfect reason why virtual disk's are going to be useful. Someone do some bench runs!

    why does windows 8 pro come into play? you wouldnt want to run games on a virtual system using hyper-v or any other vm software.

    Are you guys dual booting Ubuntu with another OS or running Ubuntu exclusively? Not sure which to do.

    I triple-boot on all the PCs I have, XP, Win7 and Linux. I like both Windows and Linux for different reasons, but I won't spend money on Win8, these are enough for me.
