dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 8 OS
I tried Windows 8 OS in VMware Workstation 8. As per sources, till now, VMware Workstation 8 is the only virtual machine which supports Windows 8 installation.

After installing the VMware Tools, I am able to use all the Apps of Windows 8 perfectly. The first thing which I tried is the Internet Explorer 10. Microsoft integrated IE 10 platform preview 3 with the Windows 8 OS. If one can observe carefully, there are two versions of Internet Explorer in Windows 8 OS. First one is the Metro UI and the second one is the standard desktop browser. As per Microsoft, they both use the same core. Internet Explorer 10 is the same program with two different skins.
The Metro interface of Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8 is plugin free, i.e, users won't be able to access Flash, Silverlight or Java contents using the Metro interface browser. Microsoft wants to concentrate on HTML5 in the Metro Internet Explorer 10 browser. The Metro interface browser is for developers, not for general users. The desktop version will continue to support browser plugins and other standard browser extensions.
The good thing is, both the Metro interface of IE10 and the general desktop version both share data between each other, which includes browsing history, typed addresses, favorites and settings, etc. you can notice a bar at the bottom to enter a web address and to perform few actions like, reloading, opening previously visited website etc. Once the user starts interacting with websites, all the other elements auto hide themselves.
