Hi,

Going to give Windows 8 a try? The best way is to install it in VitrualBox. You can delete it in a quick time and you will keep you're old Windows.

Are you installing in on you're computer? Make sure that:
  • Older versions will be removed.
  • You will lose all you're files, programs etc.
  • You must have a install CD and license of the old Windows version.
So, you go to use Windows 8? Do it in VitrualBox!

Not if you install in dual boot mode by choosing a different partition. I have both Win7 and Win8 on same computer.

True that. I have Kubuntu and Win7 living next to each other that way. I am planning to introduce a new neighbor soon. :)
