I just went through a painful upgrade of my personal Windows 7 PC to Windows 8 Pro.
(The in place upgrade appeared to work, but would never come up again, so I had to do a refresh which means I have to re-install all my programs.)
Now I am looking for good VM software.
I have used VirtualBox in the past (windows 7), but it stopped working for unknown reasons.
With Windows 8 Pro, I can use Microsoft's solution, VirtualBox, or VMware player.
While I feel very competent with NAV and SQL Server, I am very limited in my Windows Server knowledge, so I am looking for a solution that is simple to install and stays running.
My current employer does not supply MSDN subscriptions, which means I have to load evaluation software. I plan to stop fighting this battle and buy my own subscription.
I notice that VirtualBox is a favorite on this forum. Other forums favor VMware player.
Windows 8 supplies a better solution than Windows 7.
I plan to run NAV2013, NAV2009R2 RTC, and future versions as they come out.
Windows 8 Hyper-V?
(Saturday night - yep - I don't have a life.
