Well in that case I wish the next version of PSP works with Windows 8. [sarcasm]
Seriously, I know they will work things out before launch. I am aware this is a user board and came here hoping there may be others who have experienced the same problem. I use PSP every day. I was part of the Beta development of X4 and really like where it's headed.
In case anyone would like to know my experiences using Windows 8: I find it runs a lot quicker. Startup is faster and most programs seem to more peppy. Especially Photoshop which usually takes a while to start on my system. The Metro UI is alright, but really made for touch based interfaces and not something I need on my laptop since I can use Rainmeter for most of my favorite features, like weather. I have grown to like the new search. They got rid of the bloated start menu which I never really liked. If you want to start a program that isn't in your quicklauch area, you tap the Windows button on the keyboard and start typing. Windows gives you a full list of Apps, Commands, or Files.
I haven't upgraded to X4 Ultimate yet, but want to. I've been forced to use Photoshop Elements the last few days which is nowhere close to X4. Hopefully there will be a fix or update coming soon. If anyone is using PSP with Windows 8 please let me know.
