I really like dual boot. All my data files are in the Win 7 partition (even my many Thunderbird email folders) so I can work in either Win 7 or Win 8. That way even if Win 8 started causing me some unlivable problems I could just go back to Win 7 and keep on working. I had no problem installing my Microsoft Office programs on the Win 8 partition so I looks like the authorization system determines it is the same computer.
Is that true or am I living on borrowed time?
Would Microsoft Publisher licensing follow the same rules as Microsoft Office?
