Windows 8 Do Not Upgrade

Microsoft has released its new Windows 8 operating system. Although the upgrade promises to deliver great new features, it has not yet been fully vetted for compatibility with the UCSF computing environment. As with the Mac Mountain Lion upgrade, we expect the encryption and VPN vendors to release their compatible software in 2-3 months. Those who try to install Windows 8 earlier may experience significant problems, especially with encrypted computers.
