Microsoft Windows 8, release October 26, 2012, is the latest version of the Windows operating system. As with any new operating system releases, there tend to be numerous patches following the initial release date, as well as potential software incompatibilities, hardware compatibility issues, and other potential issues connecting to services. For these reasons, early adopters may encounter more problems and find there is less support available to them for issues encountered, until the operating system has had time to mature. LIS does not recommend or support upgrading to Windows 8 at this writing. As older operating systems may not be available or viable options for the latest hardware, this page is meant to provide a spot for early adopters to share any known issues and solutions to problems.
