* geek - penny & sheldon - laptops

Operating Systems...

So I'm probably buying a new laptop in the fall, but wasn't sure whether to wait for Windows 8 (not a fan of the Metro UI on PCs) or to just grab a Windows 7 PC and maybe do a dual boot with Linux Mint.

...which is why I'm downloading the VMWare Player now - I'll install both as virtual machines and give them a test run. I probably don't really need more than one OS but I'm curious about the two - it might just end up with me developing a new appreciation for Windows 7 lol XD

Anyone tried virtual machine installations? Or linux mint? Or windows 8? Going in blind except for help via my google-fu...*fingers crossed*
