The official launch date for Windows 8 is not until October 26, and I have seen only one report from a Word Pro user (at Xpertss). No major problems were reported, but I have no plans to upgrade anytime soon.
In the user forums, there is a blizzard of complaints about the desktop changes in Windows 8. It appears that many shortcuts and features that we have been using since Windows began are either gone altogether or require much work to restore. For examples, see this article by Ed Bott:
I see no indications that Win 8 will offer desktop PC users a better environment for SmartSuite than Win 7. On the other hand, compatibility with older applications in Win 8 is said to be nearly as good as in Win 7.
Love it or hate it, I encourage SmartSuite users on Windows 8 to post their experiences, both here and at Xpertss.com!
