    I'd be surprised if many Windows 7 applications don't work with Windows 8 - as it's not a huge change under the hood (as much as it may appear different). So don't worry, you shouldn't run in to any problems (especially as compatibility mode will fix the majority of minor problems).

    So far I have tested one very important program. Well, very important for me. And this program works fine. It's World of Warcraft. Plus the Curse client. So far so good.

    All my programs have worked, even the fingerprint software which is usually finicky.

    Agreed with the comments. I have 25 of my own programs running 100%, and have tested several others - no problems so far. There are one or two, which I have heard, are giving problems. But, agoodwriter, do you have a source for your statement? I would love to investigate and challenge the remark!

    From my experience, all my applications I used on W7 work 100% on W8. The OS is pretty much the same, except for the new metro style microsoft introduced.

    All of the usual programs will work with Windows 8 I am sure. As long as MSN 9, Google Chrome, and IE8/9 work with Windows 8 I'm good.
