    Very useful article, Drew. Ted Bott tends to explain things better than the other writers at ZDNet.

    The Bad: One must have Windows 7 Enterprise (corporate users) or Ultimate (home users) for it to work, as Ted pointed out, & I confirmed this here.

    That's what I've used to test Windows 8. It's nice because you don't have to partition and deal with the potential problems involved with that. When your done simply delete it and no repartitioning to recover the space.
