Windows 8 Can Directly Mount ISO
I was pleasantly surprised that Windows 8 can mount ISO (CD-ROM) images. I was trying to install "Visual Studio Express 2012" on my laptop today, but when I tried to install "Visual Studio Express 2012 for Web" with the "Microsoft Web Platform Installer", I got the "invalid command line arguments" error message. So I downloaded the ISO version of it.
If I had to, I was going to install "DAEMON Tools" so that I can read the ISO image without actually burning it to disc. But I was lazy and decided to double-click the ISO file in Windows 8 just for giggles.
Surprise! Surprise! Windows 8 mounted the ISO image as a new drive (E: in my case). And it opened up the content of the disc in "Windows Explorer". I was able to install Visual Studio Express 2012 without burning the ISO to disc, nor having to install a third party ISO mounter. I'm beginning to like Windows 8 more and more.
