I am considering installing Windows 8 RTM on my gaming PC. Has anyone tried installing and using Steam on Windows 8?
Is Windows 8 supported by Valve/Steam in the first place? Is there any known issues?

http://store.steampowered.com/about/ says that right now Windows 8 is not officially supported. If something goes wrong, you're on your own.
That said, I've been using Steam under Windows 8 for the last few months. There are no issues I'm aware of and pretty much everything I tried worked fine. YMMV
Nearly all games I've tried on Windows 8 have worked through Steam. With the exception of Crysis 2 and Just Cause 2 as far as I remember. These should hopefully be fixed in due course anyway.
Almost none of my games work, none of my steam games work. The only game that I have on windows 8 that kinda works is medal of honor, and it autokicks me from every multiplayer server for no reason. (I tried updating punkbuster, etc)
