FF + Windows 8

I will be upgrading to a new computer soon, and I'm wondering if Fortress Forever will run on Windows 8? Or should I just stick with Windows 7?

Thanks.

I'm pretty damned partial to Win7. Is there a real reason for me to upgrade?

fuck no. Windows 8 was cheaper than 7 because it was their foot-in-the-door to the mobile world. It's good, but I still prefer windows 7. There's too much that is completely different than the feel of a regular windows OS that I end up changing back anyway and win7 is the best thing since XP.

C&P of a post of mine:

Unlike previous new Windows releases there's no real need to upgrade to 8, unless you're one of those people who likes the latest things. However, I don't see a reason not to.

The core Operating System is just as good if not slightly better than 7. It's the removal of the Start Menu that is dumb.


-Faster boots, possible slightly better performance.
-Improved Task Manager.
-Pauseable File Transfer.
-Multi-monitor support
-File Explorer
-Windows 8 adds native support for USB 3.0, which allows for faster data transfers and improved power management with compatible devices
-Windows To Go

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Features_new_to_Windows_8


Don't believe the jibba jabba about bugs and incompatibility of many things. It's mostly feedback from noobs judging it from pre RTM or very early days at release. I have been on 8 since October with no problems. EVERYTHING worked for me.

8 is overly judged by people who are lazy or the computer illiterate. Yes, the Metro/Tile interface is dumb on the desktop, but you can use StartIsBack and correct file associations, done.

It's not like disabling and removing from Windows is a new thing. IE, Media Player, Movie Maker, Outlook, Media Center, UAC all have to go/disable for me anyway. It's just 1 more thing on the list, no big deal.

Wrong. They're pointlessly adding a button that links to Metro stuff, NOT the Start Menu.
