    Native ISO mounting in Windows 8


    It's high time I join you guys in the hype for Windows 8. And to kick things off, I want to share this little screeny with you:



    As you can see, Microsoft is adding a new feature to natively mount and burn .iso images in Windows 8.

    You can mount, but not edit

    Also, it may just be a dev tool...

    I hope not. It would be extremely useful to have a native handler for .iso files, burning and mounting if nothing else. It would certainly save me time on installing and updating an extra third-party software just for my CD rips (don't ask, when it comes to ripping CDs, I'm an editing perfectionist, psychopathic maniac xD)

    I agree!

    Apart from that, it looks like MS will be adding a special feature for coloring the Aero interface (windows borders, taskbar and start menu), depending on the current wallpaper of the theme.

    Very interesting! The image mounting feature is a 'must have' thing, and I do hope it's not just a Dev feature.

    Very very nice feature! I hope they will extend this to other image formats like NRGs and DAA.

    The ability to mount disk images would be amazing! Thats one thing that I love about OS X.
