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.
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

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.
