I do MS .NET development in my day job. The work horse tool is Visual Studio 2010. I'd like to ask my boss about putting Windows 8 64 RP on a box.

We are a shoe string budget and getting W7 64 Pro has been a challenge. At least there is a few months before RP expires.

It all boils down to how compatible it is with Windows 7 and of course the drivers. The box is a Dell Optiplex 745 IRRC.
