If you're asking if Skyrim will work on windows 8, I use windows 8 and it seems to work fine!

One caution — while it works well on Win 8 in my experience, there have been several posts of problems with Win 8.1, mostly due to driver incompatibilities. I suggest waiting several months before Win 8.1 if you want to do so at all, to allow the driver writers to catch up. That's what I'm doing.

I am running 8.1 and have no noticeable issues in relation to how it ran on 8.0, however that said if you don't need to upgrade yet its probably better to wait a little while, although this game is fine I have had a few issues with other games on steam.

I remember when Win 7 came out, it had similar problems but none so severe. I bought a new backup laptop that came with Win 7 and it worked fine. When I upgraded my two-years-older Vista machine to Win 7, I had a few BSODs before a new video driver was released for it that was Win 7 compatible. No BSODs since. I love Win 7!

So from what I've read here — many problems with Win 8.1 but very few uneventful Win 8.1 upgrades — I decided to wait a few months, perhaps even into mid-2014 before I upgrade.

Took me awhile just to get Windows 8 working so I'm not in any hurry for 8.1, but Skyrim seems to work fine. It's kind of laggy, but that's probably CPU/GPU issues.

Most of the gaming computers are still Windows 7

I got a comp with Win8 this summer, and haven't had a single issue with running Skyrim on it.

you only have 8.1 issues if your PC is old.
