    Windows 7, Windows 8 RP


    Yes, Zune software will work on Windows 8 for WP7.5 and it works just like it does on Windows 7. If you have a Zune Pass with subscribed music you won't be able to play it in the Music App because the DRM has changed between Zune and XBox Music. However it will still play in Zune...BUT! If you download new music from the Music App it won't play in Zune and you won't be able to sync it to your phone. It's a pretty messy transition.

    Obviously everything is supposed to work better when you use Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
