I do a bit of web development and need to test my site in various versions of IE (all the way back to 6).
I've been firmly in OSX and linux-land for about 5 years and have never used Windows 7, let alone Windows 8.
I plan on installing a version of Windows as a VM on my Mac. Before I spend any money on a licence I thought I would ask if there was any advantage in installing Windows 8 for this situation, or if I should just stick with Windows 7. What little I know about Windows 8 makes it sound like there'd be an annoying learning curve, but I don't want to miss out on anything.
