We haven't tried but there is no reason why not and I would have expected someone to let us know if it had issues by now. I would say you should be fine.

Don't install it. :P Windows 8 got a terrible UI for a use in a desktop computer. It may be great with a touch screen but with a mouse it's just a pain in the ass imho. I tried it and hated it wholeheartly.

Believe me, if I could, I would pass this Windows version. But I work as an IT, so... I really don't have any chance to escape it. :wink:

It's possible to change the display, it could be used with a "tablet" interface (inusable on desktop pc...) or the normal one, which is the same as windows 7. I tried it 1day mhh... 8-9 months ago, don't know if something's changed in the meanwhile so don't ask me how to make the interface changing :D

Try out "Classic Shell". That should solve your problems. The newest version was adapted to Win8
