    Welcome to the forum.
    In my experience, very small percentage of programs will have difficulty running properly on W8 and some of them can be forced to run thru compatibility mode. Most of the problems come with some older games but "serious" apps have little to none. I would say that more than 90% of programs (and I have and use hundreds of them) will run without a hitch.

    There may be some software that worked in Win 7 that for some reason doesn't work in Win 8 but I personally haven't encountered any. I switch back and forth between Win 7 and Win 8 machines and run the same suite of software on them both.
