Windows 8 Support for Autodesk Products Autodesk intends to support many of our key products on Windows 8 and will add additional support.

Windows 8 represents a fundamental shift in the way Windows works and is far more touchscreen-orientated for use on tablets as well as traditional PCs. If you’re completely new to Windows 8 and haven’t used a preview version.

The real difference between this and previous versions is that Windows 8 is finished; it’s polished and smooth, with even better performance than in the previews, and none of the rough edges left.

Even the previously disappointing Modern UI-style apps such as Mail, Calendar, Messaging and People are slick, sleek and far more functional.However, there is still work to do with these apps and Microsoft knows it – it released a major update to them on 10 October and several other updates subseqently.

Many of the apps are now useful and engaging rather than frustrating. This is Microsoft putting it all together.

The company has also just released a major 170MB Windows 8 update to improve performance, battery efficiency and power management.
