Looking at getting a new PC, can anyone vouch that S3 works on Windows 8?

I haven't seen any issues with sequencing at least. I haven't run a show yet however.

From what I hear, Windows 8 doesn't appear to be a ground-up revision like Vista and Windows 7 were. Apparently you can upgrade from 7 to 8 and keep your user accounts, files and programs...so it seems that the architecture won't change that extensively.

I had issues with crashing/lockups whilst using the Visualizer, but that was with the first W8 Beta versions. The Preview Candidate is a bit more stable.. The Release Candidate should be even more stable with no freezes/lockups.. I nenver got blue screens, just would lock up.

I suspect that is very true. Graphics code is one of those things that has to work, yet is usually pushed off to the very end. A lot of that is due to changes in the core that interface between the video driver, and Windows itself.

GDI/GDI+ (the core technology used in the Vis) is pretty mature, so I expect it all to work at release time.
