Windows 8 compatibility

I always enjoy trying out Microsoft's Windows betas when they are released. CE worked great with the 7 beta, probably because it is so similar to Vista at the core. However, in the Windows 8 beta, CE causes anything accessing the internet to use 100% CPU. This is basically just a bug report, as I already called CE and they said that, while they really haven't tested Windows 8 compatibility yet, one of the techs said that one of the networking dlls (can't remember the name, someone want to remind me?) that CE depends on changed in Win 8, causing the issue. Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone else wanting to try it and to get the issue in writing.
