Might not matter, though, to those upgrading to Windows 8 in the more "traditional" sense - i.e., putting it on one system and using it there.
I've written a book on how to tweak Windows 8 to get the best desktop experience out of it (and Metro be damned), so I've been through Windows 8 pretty thoroughly... So far, having worked with the RTM code now, I'm singularly unimpressed. Why did they feel they needed to carve out all the desktop visual styles? It's so flat it feels like sand in the eyes!
About the only thing it seems to bring to the party is leanness - since they've carved out so much stuff, Windows 8 can be run with about half the system impact Windows 7 has. Other than that I'm not seeing any reason to want to move to it - for the first time in all the versions of Windows ever released.
Do you have an ATI video card in your test system, or are you running it in a virtual machine? I ask because apparently the Catalyst 12.8 release is supposed to be compatible with Windows 8, and I'm curious how well it works.
No, the embedded Intel graphics within an i5-3550 cpu. It also works ok on an old Dell E4200 laptop, which again is Intel.
I have an open issue with Adobe, claiming I should be able to do a one-time activation of a legitimate copy of PS on a Windows to Go external drive without horsing around with deactivate/reactivate as I move it from system to system, since It meets the requirement that it can only be used by one person at a time. We'll see.
Have they officially claimed Photoshop is supported to work on Windows 8 in any form yet? I haven't seen that. Certainly this site only states compatibility with Windows XP and 7...

That system must really fly with Windows 8.
