Seems pretty stable to me so far, it's worth a play!

If you boot it on real hardware put it on a Logical drive.
If any, I would put it into vBox - although I saw that there seems to be a problem with the Guest additions.

Some are getting it running in VBox without issue, I couldn't get it in VBox or VMware so I installed it to my main machine on a Logical drive so it wouldn't/couldn't mess with the "System" boot files.

It's just fine as a normal dual/multiboot boot.

Exactly the same as if you multiboot Vista and 7, or 7 and 7 - it's all nt6 - no problems at all.

Win 7

Win 8 is realy worth downloading
I couldn't get it to run in any virtualization software that's why I wanted to create a new partition to dualboot it
