ITS is working with campus partners to test Windows 8 with the standard software, services, and campus business systems. We know that some systems such as FIS and ADFS are not currently compatible with Windows 8. As we learn more about using Windows 8 at UCSC, we will update the following web page at: http://its.ucsc.edu/software/release/windows-8.html
If you plan to purchase a new university-owned computer, please review this page: http://its.ucsc.edu/standard-desktop-support/standard-computers.html. ITS recommends choosing the Windows 7 operating system since it's fully supported for campus standard software, services, and business systems. We anticipate offering upgrades from older Windows operating systems to Windows 8 in early 2013.
If you have any questions, please contact the ITS Support Center.
