Win 8 in VMware?

Do you guys expect Win 8 consumer preview to work in VMware? Or, some other virtual desktop?

Anxious to give the OS a try. Thanks.

I do, and it will work on VMware, at least most likely.

The "Developer Preview" was not working on VMware Workstation 7, but work fine on Workstation 8, so I expect it will work on WS 8, if not, VMware will release an update
