Windows 8 works fine with it if you use the 4GB patch and know how to work compatibility settings. I noticed a lot of people complaining about how they couldn't play the game with windows 8, but I have had 0 problems getting it to work.

Just requires making some small changes in Compatibility settings.

No problems at all with win8 as well as win7 (both 64bit versions)

Just make sure you use proper drivers (win7/vista if no proper win8 drivers available, no XP shice anymore please) - get rid of the metro interface with small apps like "Classic Shell" (free) or StartIsBack and voila you have a more spiffy windows 7 with an updated kernel / functionality and whatnot and everything runs peachy - no need to not buy a win8 license, its fine once you get rid of the pre-installed garbage

Also - if you dont like it, you can always go back to win7 - it's not like you're stuck with it forever...right? :D
