I'm about to have my students use LaTeX. I'm a Mac user, so a simple install of MacTeX is very straightforward.
I'm concerned about students installing MiKTeX on Windows 8 as the system requirements on miktex.org say:
MiKTeX 2.9 requires one of the following Windows operating systems:
Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 (all editions except Starter Edition)
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (all editions except Starter Edition)
So, OK to install on Windows 8? Any Windows 8 users out there using MiKTeX 2.9 successfully? If so, any installation suggestions I can share with my students?
