Steam is compatible to windows 8, as are all games as far as I know. Basically, if it runs on windows 7 it'll run on windows 8.

Yes you can. Like all things you buy on the Steam Store, everything (except for timed subscription licenses, such as EVE Online subscriptions*) can be stored into the inventory. For pre-orders, the "pre-order" does not register until the gift of said pre-ordered item is binded to an account. Basically, you can pre-order something for someone else as a ...

Yes, they do. The game is published by Deep Silver / Koch Media from Germany and all of their recent games are Steamworks. Watch out for the publisher when buying in Russia or Asia though.

From what I understand, Steam only makes an attempt to reconnect every few minutes so it doesn't overwhelm the same servers that have just been offline (perhaps due to overloading!). By clicking on that button, you forced Steam to attempt a reconnection; it just so happened that that one attempt worked. :)

The only downside to both is that you have to keep the machine on standby, which on a PC used more power than a console - but still a relatively small amount 2) is trickier, but ...
