Windows 8 has Native Mounting Support for ISOs, VHDs

Windows 8 has Native Mounting Support for ISOs, VHDs

Windows 8 will be able to mount ISO and VHD files without the need to install third party software such as Daemon Tools or PowerISO. To mount an ISO file, right-click on the file for the mount options or select mount from the enhanced Explorer ribbon. Double-clicking on the file will also do the trick.

For a VHD file, which is a Microsoft proprietary file format for a virtual machine's hard disk, mounting it will make it appear as a hard drive on the Windows 8 system.

It seems that Microsoft is drumming up interests for its new operating system and based on an earlier report, we might get to see a beta version of Windows 8 by early 2012.
