Windows 8 Will Support ISO and VHD Files

According to the Windows 8 developer blog, Microsoft's next OS will let you open ISO and VHD files without having to use third party software.

In continuing with the improvements in core Windows functionality and also oft-requested features, we are adding native Explorer support for ISO and VHD files in Windows 8. While terabytes of storage are available to all of us, managing disk (or disc) image formats remains important for a number of mission-critical operations in many organizations and among power users. We know even more support for VHD is a big request, so stay tuned.
