October 16, 2012 – Microsoft will release Windows 8 on October 26, 2012. OIT has been testing this version for compatibility and has found that there are a number of significant issues with software commonly used on the UA campus. Device drivers are also not yet available for many of the printers and other devices we commonly use. For those reasons, we are advising all faculty and staff to not perform Windows 8 upgrades or to purchase computers with Windows 8 installed at this time. OIT will continue testing and advise when this version of the Windows OS can be used without major issues in the UA environment.
These are the following known issues with Windows 8:
- No version for McAfee Antivirus
- Not compatible with SPSS
- Not compatible with SAS
