[sc:windows-category ]On Wednesday Microsoft will be releasing Windows 8 RTM to TechNet and so I will soon have to decide what I’m going to do with the various systems I run.
I currently have 3 installs of Windows 7:
- My main PC at home
- My laptop
- A VM
The first two seem easy enough, they will get Windows 8 installed at some point (I’ve been limping along on my main PC for a while with some weird issues and a new MB I haven’t installed yet, waiting for Win8).
The VM on the other hand brings up some questions. Will Win8 run well in a VM where the primary access is through RDP? Will I need to give the VM more resources?
I belive the plan of attack will be:
- Install Win8 on my laptop
- Run it for a few weeks
- Format my PC’s hard disk
- Swap the MB
- Install Win8 on my PC
- Test Win8 running through RDP on my desktop
- Create a new VM and install Win8
- Test some more 😉
I’ll post some follow up articles as I complete the various steps.
