Win 8 Consumer Preview in WMware

Been reading the webpage article about VMware.
Do I understand correctly that I can install WMware and run Win 8 Preview in it, even in a Win 7 Home Premium machine ?

Thank you.
The reason I asked is that, initially I was advised, in another forum, that I should dual boot to run Win 8.
I am not crazy about shrinking partition and run dual booting.

If I install VMware, I can toggle between Win 8 and Win 7 ?

With a virtual machine, you don't have to toggle between the 2 as they both can run at the same time. Your VM will simply run from inside a window, just like any other application.

For playing with an OS, I would NEVER recommend a dual boot anymore. NEVER. I would always suggest going with a VM and learning there.
