Not sure about desktops

Linux Mint 16 KDE Dual Boot MS Win 8.1

Hi, I just wanted feedback on how Mint 16 KDE and MS Windoze 8.1 work when dual booted? Has anyone had issues?
Another question regarding VM Ware workstation if anyone can answer. If I want to install VM Ware and run Mint from there, would I simply use an .iso image?

Thanks
