    NR has this link to Nikon's Windows 8 Compatibility Announcement.


    "We plan to test Windows versions of the following software applications for compatibility with Windows 8. We will announce our plans regarding full compatibility once testing is complete.
    - ViewNX 2
    - Capture NX 2
    - Camera Control Pro 2
    - Short Movie Creator
    - Nikon Message Center 2
    - Wireless Transmitter Utility
    - Thumbnail Selector
    - NEF codec
    - NRW codec
    - PC-PJ Transfer
    - nik Color Efex Pro 3.0
    - IPTC Preset Manager
    - GP-N100 Utility

    We do not intend to provide compatibility with the following applications.
    - Capture NX Ver. 1.x
    - Camera Control Pro Ver. 1.x
    - Nikon Capture series
    - ViewNX Ver. 1.x
    - Nikon Transfer Ver. 1.x

    This might force some people to either upgrade the software listed or delay introducing windows 8.

    To late, I tested most of the top list already on Windows 8 Pro ( 64bit ) .....!!!

    They all work extremely well, Some seem to work better than they did on Win 7, But that could just be my test machine has a fresh set up, Plus being a custom build it has no bloatware.

    That said I have also modified the Windows 8, So called modern GUI, As Microsoft forgot to make it with an option for those who actually use their computers for " Work " ....!!!!!!!!

    Plus and this is a big plus, Those using desktop machines with big displays, Lets say 24 inch and 27 inch & 30 inch monitors, Who also, ( Listen up Microsoft...Smile ) Do not have " Touch " screen, Or for that matter want or need 30 inch touch screens, Or tend to get a bit stroppy when people put their creamy dabs all over the screen, Can use their machines as they always have done, In a proper working environment, Just like Windows 7..........Smile Grin Wink

    If your one of those seeking the solace of a Windows 7 like GUI, But want to run Windows 8, ( Note I did not type Upgrade ) Check out the link below.

    Happiness is a proper desktop environment for a " Workflow " machine.

    Come on Nikon, Catch up.....Wink

    Interesting link.

    Will it also let me play Maziacs and Hungry Horace if I can find a way of connecting my cassette-player to a USB port?

    The old Start Manu increases your workload. For example if you want to load Adobe Photoshop Lightroom from the old start menu you have to
    click START> All Programs>Adobe > Adobe Photoshop Lightroom > Lightroom.

    From the new Windows 8 start screen you just type 'lig' then click Lightroom from the list of search results.

    Yup the old start menu was really poor anyway, with Windows 7 I had almost everything I needed pinned to the task bar and everything else I could find using search. I never used the start menu if I could help it.
    Now I have the same thing in Windows 8 plus a massive start menu I can pin all those odd programs to.

    win 7 does that too once you bring up start via the button or win key then search. not quite so direct but all there.
