Right now I have Windows 8 Enterprise Edition newly installed (2 days ago). Never had such a flawless install experience...just had to get one driver to install (Fresco Logic USB 3.0 driver...found it in 2 seconds). Found and installed my Canon wireless printer as well, and joined my Homegroup without me having to input the password. This makes two Windows 8 machines, plus a Win7 machine here on my network now.

BUT (and folks won't like this I'm sure) I did promptly install Start8 and I did pay the $5 for my laptop. I will report if I ever have any issues, as this is now on my laptop which I use often.

So far a positive experience, aside from having to use Start8. All my programs seem to work fine so far.
