Should I install Windows 8 on a my hard drive or as a Virtual Machine? I am downloading the iso from http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/download
Install it on a USB and then flush it down the toilet.
If you really
want to give it a try, I suppose VirtualBox is a cleaner and quicker solution, but bear in mind that Guest Additions don't work well with Windows 8, and that it won't properly resize the screen and adjust to the size of the host window resolution. Also, I had big performance issues, but that's probably because I screwed something up.
