I just installed Windows 8 on my computer. I got the ISO and the product key from my university so the software itself is sound.
I use alot of virtual box. And ever since I moved to Windows 8, I have noticed that virtual box crashes more often. In particular, it is very very bad at opening multiple guests. My CPU usage will be at like 20% and I only have 3 guests open and my entire computer just freezes. Cursor and all. In Windows 7, I was able to open like 6 (not that I ever needed to) and really push my CPU.
I havent experience any other issues with Windows 8 yet.
Has anyone encountered this?
