Yes, many people are testing Windows 8 preview releases in Parallels Workstation today because it is a great way to test beta software.
However, it is not a fully supported guest operating system. This means that there are known issues and we do not provide mainstream phone, email, chat or Skype support if you run in to issues.
There are known issues when running Windows 8 release previews, so read KB113533 before you set up a Windows 8 preview virtual machine.
