    Why do a dual boot configuration, better way is through VM workstation. No hassle to uninstall or clear your boot files and boot loader incase you dont like it.

    Don't you guys feel that Windows 8 is wasted without a touch enabled monitor.
    Boot speed is fantastic though even better than linux distributions.

    Agree Jotinder, I wanted to test it on full system. For example, consumer preview had driver support for my PC's mainboard, release preview doesn't accept win7 drivers. In virtual machine, the feeling of being restricted is always there with restricted resources.
    It would be fantastic on a touch enabled monitor, but only for Metro environment. For working in other productivity linked applications a keyboard will be still required. A 6" or 7" tablet will be a great experience though. It is not just the boot speed, the speed with which apps launch is also great.
