Thanks Michael ...

Only a few laptops and desktops are being offered with Windows 8 installed. They are higher end machines than I have budgeted for so it probably won't be an issue though I do plan to have a look at them. Definitely I am only looking at i7 laptops or ultrabooks ... no tablets.

My current laptop is big, heavy and five years old. MoI works just fine on it but it takes a backpack to lug it around. I am hoping for something to take to a client's house and set on the corner of the kitchen table for a quick 3d pdf view of their proposed renovation or new house preliminary drawings.

cheers,
eric

I'm running Windows 8 RTM on my main workstation (Windows 7 was totally hosed and I needed to do a clean install anyway).

So far I've had no issues with any major software, including MOI. The only thing that's had an issue is my Dataplex SSD caching software. When it's installed it makes my registry read-only and I can no longer install or uninstall anything.

Otherwise I've found it to be a nice OS. It's different, but honestly I don't see what all the whining is about. The start menu is actually still there, you just go to the bottom left of your screen and right-click. Otherwise you can use the start window with the tiles.

I personally just use Launchy and don't worry about either one.
