Hi Ricardo
The GPU debugging story is described here:
As per my earlier response in this thread, the REF that supports debugging is currently on Windows 8 only and I explained why that is. From the link above you can find a very easy workaround using remote debugging to a VM on your machine – please see if that meets your needs.

As a side comment, with Windows 8 (unprecedentedly) being so incredibly cheap to upgrade to for personal users, combined with the fact that many developers can obtain it through msdn, startup, and academic subscriptions, we don’t think the impact on developers is as big as you may think at first. Plus there is the workaround I mentioned above if you really want to delay the inevitable of getting Windows 7 on your development machine.

I suspect this is the latest talking point for desktop use of Win8... yeah, the majority of desktop users hate it, but it's soooo cheap!!!!!

When you've got a virtual monopoly, and the only real benefit you can point to for your new product is price, you've got a problem. I'm also curious to know if he really believes the corporate line that upgrading to win8 is inevitable....
