Edit: Reformulating the question:
We have ordered new laptops but before they arrive, our development team is trying to decide whether to install Windows 8 or stick with Windows 7. We have already tested on isolated machines, but we have not yet been allowed to add the machines to the domain.
Before we approach the networking group to discuss adding Windows 8 machines to the domain, we need more information on what changes / issues to expect in moving from Windows 7.
Are there any aspects we should consider that are specific to Windows 8 clients?
Thus far, I've gotten the following feedback:
- New set of Group Policy templates
- Changes to proxy server settings
Additional items along these lines would be helpful.
We're not looking for items related to Windows GUI changes, but instead primarily items related to having the machine live and be used on the domain.
To reiterate, we have tested on isolated machines and do not currently have the ability to test ON THE DOMAIN.
