but yes, and no.
adb works on everything, the issue with 8/8.1 is fastboot.

but with the patches that you can manually get now, OR when they are released on the 8th via windows update (8.1 only)
fastboot works.

Well believe it. Example...after I did the upgrade, any program I clicked on took forever to open. I would see the little hour glass going round and round. With the web browser open, clicking on a link or shortcut would pretty much do the same. Even a simple web page like craigslist took forever to open up. Restore back to 8, all problems gone. I suppose maybe I got a bad download? They are releasing a new version on the 8th? Maybe I'll try again.

The problem I am having is my phone is not being recognized. And the drivers, like the one Scott posted above won't work. It says the driver installer is not supported for this operating system.

I got adb and fastboot working fine on my old Windows XP Toshiba. Kind of scary though on a 12 year old laptop lol
