Hey guys, I was wondering... if I could use Windows 8 on a single core pc? or do i at least need to acquire a dual-core machine? I read a product preview on here: http://www.designertechsoftware.com/products/microsoft-windows-8-pro-download-upgrade-version


It says Windows 8, at least the upgrade version works on low-power pc's.


is it ok if i have a single core mechanism for the time being? :)
