Windows 8 is horrible for those of us in the video editing profession. There are too many problems, one of them being the USB 3.0 drivers. Microsoft locked down the drivers, so independent manufacturers couldn't update them. This makes a lot of USB 3.0 devices unusable, unless you use the hack to get around Microsoft's block.
I'd personally just use Windows 7, which doesn't have that issue, and seems more stable.
