Has anyone tried the newly released version of Windows 8 with AutoCAD? If so, how does it work?

 

My office is using ACA 2009 & 2013 with Windows 7.

No official announcements yet.

But I seriously doubt 2009 will be listed as approved, it's been retired.

Yes, you are right. But, I run ACA 2009, ACA 2013 & Revit 2013 on Windows 7 without any problems.

 

I was just wondering if any of these programs ran on Windows 8.
