I wanted to check on the "Access Violation" that Tony experienced to see it was an easily 
reproducible situation for a Windows 8 installation of LibreOffice.

Before doing that, I installed LibreOffice 3.6.4 on a Windows XP SP3 system.  I then ran the 
Windows 8 Upgrade advisor.  The upgrade advisor did not include LibreOffice in its report, neither 
as compatible or incompatible.

However, there was a link to web resources for checking on applications not covered in Upgrade 
Advisor reports.  After nosing around, I was led to here:
There is a Compatibility Center where reports about particular applications are crowd-sourced.  
(Note that only major versions are identified.)

The dual listing for LibreOffice Version 3 is because TDF is identified as the "brand" in one 
source, and "libreoffice" in another.  The same "Community Discussion" backs up both, though.  

To see how this works, I "voted" on the TDF entry.  I was unable to specify version 3.6 (only 3.3 
and 3.5 are listed), nor was I asked for details.

Interesting but not totally satisfying.

Jay, I agree.

There are two kinds of compatibility for Windows 8.

First, desktop compatibility is essentially the same as for Windows 7.  There is more room for 
gradual upgrade to integrate more smoothly, including on x64 machines with Atom processors, 
solid-state drives, and storage in the cloud.  I think UX features will also adjust and improve, 
but that will be relatively gradual.
