While I know it is a bit early on this but since they had released Windows 8 in a prerelease (beta?) form, I wondered if anyone had thought of trying it out with MC?

My personal opinion is to wait until AVID certifies it... Windows 7 is a fine OS and is rock solid so I will stick with it. :-)
The Windows 8 "release" is meant for developers to review certain technicial aspects. It is not even at the Beta stage...
Using MC 6.0.5, Avid FX6.4, Vegas Pro 13, DVDit6.4proHD, CCE Basic, TmpGe Express4, TmpGe Authoring Works 4, DVDLab-Studio. Sony EX-1R, Canon XH-A1, GL2, GL1, Canon EOS 60D
why would you? wait untill approved by Avid. That is if editing on a stable system is important to you. If not: experiment but don't expect much support

I wasn't going to. I just attended a IT show and was able to play with it and just had a question.
I've read in a few posts that if it works on windows 7 it WILL work on windows 8. However in the case of Avid I wouldn't be too certian... Can't really know untill ya try it I guess. I've got an old computer that I've been thinking about installing windows 8 on. If I do I'll try out MC and let ya know... If I ever get around to it
I have tinkered with the pre-release, and it does work very well with modest hardware. I think I will give it a spin with MC if I ever get the (play) time.
I've just tried it on a low end computer with win 8, but with touchscreen.... the touchscreen is fun... but I would not use it in a real project.
everything seems to work, exept I have to start it as Administrator, It can't recognize the windows media player and It does not see the network storage.... (but I think thats because windows 8 seems to handle them different...
I also tried to AMA a h.264 file.... it went slugish... but that might be the low end computer and to be honest I haven't tried it on my Online-computer....
I haven't tried it with Isis, but that should not be a problem (as long as you can install the client)
