Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

Thanks for letting me know. My current PC doesn't have VT-x.

It's also an exe download. So apparently, you can't try it without already having some form of windows. The only windows I have is in a virtual machine. I'd be afraid to try win 8 within a win7 virt machine, but knowing it wouldn't work due to the VT-x saves me the trouble.
