    Ok, I just installed this in under 10 mins....

    In Parallels, with 2 cores, 1.5GB RAM and an SSD on my MacBook Air Late 2010. Wow.

    It has taken me an hour just to get to the log in screen after installing it in VirtualBox. >>

    VirtualBox isn't exactly the speediest of virtual machines.

    :eek: How much RAM did you dedicate to the virtual instance and what spec is your PC? It should be much faster than that?

    You'll need to use VirtualBox as VirtualPC won't cut it (ironic!), I wrote a guide on it a few moments ago to test out my first article in XenForo:

    I'm actually having no issues at all running Win8 on VMware Fusion 4, which was just released earlier today. Both that and Parallels Desktop 7 are optimized for Lion, but the latter won't work with Win8 for some reason.

    Overall, I like it. I really like the Metro design language, and that Aero Glass is using squares, rather than rounded corners. (One of the reasons why I always liked the Windows Classic UI.)

    What do you mean it won't work with Windows 8?

    I still can't find out about the upgrade path from VMware:

    Upgrade Entitlements TimingUpgrades for the following products: View 5, Fusion 4, Workstation 8, Site Recovery Manager 5, and vFabric will be available on the licensing portal by the week of 9/19. If you have questions, please contact License support.

    What I mean is exactly what I posted: For whatever reason, I couldn't get Win8 to boot up at all under Parallels. Maybe I did something wrong, but in general, I've always had more luck with VMware Fusion than Parallels.

    I find those hidden slickdeals links very distasteful...

    Does Unity work with Windows 8?

    Fusion 4.0 is a paid upgrade. You can get it for $49.99 right now. Use the promo code FUSION20 and get another $10 off.
