Windows "As we pass the one month anniversary of the general availability of Windows 8, we are pleased to announce that to-date Microsoft has sold 40 million Windows 8 licenses. Tami Reller shared this news with industry and financial analysts, investors and media today at the Credit Suisse 2012 Annual Technology Conference. Windows 8 is outpacing Windows 7 in terms of upgrades." Not bad, but there are the usual asterisks, as Ars notes.

You do know that a virtual environment does not give any security garantees ?

It is just an other layer of extra code and (security) bugs.

Not being able to use proper encryption because of bad random seeding also is a big issue in virtual environments.

If you want some security and virtualization, then I suggest QEMU/KVM but with SELinux to contain it.
