What's the best way to install Windows 8?

Run it in a virtual machine, dual boot with Windows 7, or do a full install?

I'd do the virtual machine thing first, or stick it on an old computer you don't use much. You can then test it to see if it meets your needs. The Windows 8 interface is radically different, so it may not be your cup of tea. There's no point in putting it on a machine you really need until you know if you'll like it or not.

Many people I've talked to will be sticking with Windows 7 or will be moving to a Mac. So that should tell you a lot about Windows 8.
