Works fine for me so far on 8/8.1 64bit, just a pita to build from source.

bitcoin-qt, cgminer & bfgminer

I primarily use Linux though.

Maybe he is referring to the metro style ui. Which aside of the os per se is the most beautiful ui i have seen so far.

Windows 8 is considered unsafe to use.

Honestly I hate Windows 8, seems like a mobile OS squashed into desktop one.

Don't say that!  Angry

Windows 8 and 8.1 are great continuations of Windows 7! If you don't like Metro UI, just download little program called "StartIsBack" or remove registry key and have standard Windows 7, but much faster!

I don't like offtop, so:
I have Win 8 now and everything works - from Bitcoin/Litecoin client, Electrum to mining on P2Pool and cgminer. 0 problems Smiley

The whole windows os is the shittiest os available on the market.
And you must be out of your mind for saving your currency on the most unsecure os of all time which is even spying on you.

That's the problem with Windows 8. It's a pretty good OS but it shouldn't force you to use Metro. It's just complicated and unproductive for PC. It might be good for tablets but not for PC.

You might be right but not everyone has the time to go through the learning curve that linux requires. And if you don't know what you are doing it's better to do it on windows than linux imo  Tongue

Windows 8 if you do.

Thanks for the feedback, I have a lot of decisions to make in reguads to my pc so others opinions and information in general is very helpful.

The trend of hating Windows is beginning to fade.
Although I have painful memories with every damn version I must admit 7 and 8 are really a step forward.

Windows 7 is more than amazing.Windows 8 well... I get that they wanted to make the ultimate all-platform OS but that kinda failed for desktop computers.
Windows 8.1 on the other hand is much better,but I am sticking to Win 7 Cheesy

Windows 8 is considered unsafe to use.
Which version is considered 'safe' then? XP? 7?
