How is 8 for running older programs?

The only program I really run that hasn't received many updates is Stepmania. But how do XP programs run on 8?

Near flawlessly in compatibility mode in my experience.

Good to know. I heard things about 8 not being able to run older programs like office 2007 so it got me thinking about it's compatibility.

Windows 8 runs Office 2007/2010/2013 just fine. 2003 and earlier are not supported.
