Can anyone point me in the direction of a windows 8 evaluation copy?

Has anyone successfully installed a dual boot with Win 7 & Win 8?

Does Win 8 have better driver support than win 7 for older Laptops that were designed to support 64bit?

honestly, i wouldn't even dual boot it.

try setting up a virtual machine with it. It's a lot easier than partitioning your drive.
