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 8.5.3 Avid FX6.4, Vegas Pro 13/ DVD Architect 6pro, 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)
