Windows 8

Windows 8 at UW

IST does not support Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. If changes to our infrastructure made for Windows 7 works in Windows 8.x then great, but no additional time has been sanctioned for this OS by and for IST Workstation Services.

Windows 8 was released by Microsoft October 26nd 2012. Windows 8.1 was released August 27th, 2013. Neither has received large acceptance here at UW. As of August 2015 there are less than 300 PCs running Windows 8.1 and 31 running Windows 8 in Nexus. Although software and patches are distributed to these, they have never been fully supported by IST, and clients running this OS are responsible to keep them maintained and up-to-date.
