Aside from the hit/miss installation process, Win8 seemed stable enough for me when I was using the CP. Most of the other issues were fixed by installing appropriate Win8 Drivers
Nah, if you asked me, it's just MS phasing out Win7 early. Reception of Win8 isn't fully guaranteed to be positive, so they are giving existing Win7 users another reason to upgrade.
Mind you, as long as security patches keep on coming, few people will change their minds about 7. At least till 8 gets a year's worth of patches and fixes. It is a fine OS, even though I personally dislike the GUI and the boot sequence.
