    I'd be very surprised if it wasn't. When I installed the preview it was pretty much the same as Windows 7 but with an annoying start screen. Sadly I uninstalled it pretty snappy as it just slowed me down. I can appreciate it's design for tablets though, but not PCs.

    Ah, wish you'd tested it with UO before you uninstalled. It was just that I noticed that there were a lot of games that they already had listed as compatible - but nothing yet for UO.

    Yeah, we'll have to wait and see what shakes out with it. I like to be on the cutting edge of technology - but not with operating systems. I tend to wait and see what the reviewers say, the techys, and give them time to work out the bugs.

    Well, with luck, perhaps someone else will give it a try. I might give it a try myself, but not on my primary computer.

    ...

    If Windows history is anything to go by, stick with 7 and skip 8.

    I did test the preview under a VM on my Mac, and UO ran fine. The whole interface is just annoying as hell, and the first thing you need to do is disable all of the touchscreen crap and just get a normal desktop. It's almost like Microsoft is trying to make your desktop a tablet or something. Very annoying.

    Does feel like they took 7 and slapped a touchscreen interface on it. Ran smooth though.
