I upgraded to Windows 8 the first day it officially came out, and I've had 0 problems with D3. Actually runs better now, IMO.

I actually played the beta during the open "stress test" period using the consumer preview of Windows 8. Everything worked as it should.

This could be right. I logged in on the same PC with different windows user account and I was, not banned, but locked out of my account. Maybe this is what he wants to say?

Till they patch it so you can have the original start menu back. No way Windows 8 will be on my PC. I don't want it to be a tablet interface.

there are 2-3 third party mods that give you the start menu back.

Runs very smooth on Windows 8.

I don't mind losing the start button. Personally, what I did, was bind a shortcut key to one of the keys on the side of my Naga Razor, so when I want to bring up the "Modern UI" start menu I just press number 4 on the side of my mouse. Really easy, works from within games too.

Overall I am very happy upgrading to Windows 8.

Been running Windows 8 since beta and its worked flawlessly the entire time :)

btw, the start screen is your new start menu. Its actually nice once you get used to it. I griped at first too, then I grew to like it and I won't go back.

I got Windows 8 and Love it, Everything runs just fine and the "Tablet Screen" just takes a minute to get used to. Only see it when I hit the "Windows Button" all other times I keep my Desktop up and use it just like Win 7.

I have it, since months ago no real problems. I did have some issues with other games, but all fixed now. Diablo 3 always runned flawlessly.

I've had windows 8 for months, I've never once had any issues.

In fact windows 8 RTM / GA work even faster than my windows 7 install due to allowing for multithreading.
