My MacBook Pro is currently running on only the Mac Lion operating system, but I do wish to partition my hard drive in order to have both Mac and Windows OS's. The Windows 8 beta will be released in February, I believe, and the actually release date might be late summer/early fall.

Should I buy the Windows 7 now, and upgrade later? Buy Windows 8 beta now, and upgrade later? Or just wait for over six months to get the full Windows 8?

Also, if I were to buy the Windows 8 beta, what are the pros and cons with having a beta operating system???

I personally never use brand new operating systems until a fair amount of time has past in order for security issues and other bugs to be resolved via updates.

Brand new operating systme suffer from compatability issues usually and that could mean that you can not use many of the things you wanted a windows OS for in the first place.
