Will this remote work with Windows 8 Pro (with Media Center Add On)?

Tested on Win8 developer preview - yes, it works great AFTER you start windows media center - sadly it does not start media center from metro interface. Not sure if that changed on final version. The mouse control works well (a bit hard) for using around win8.

Yes. I (and my 3-yr-old and 7-yr-old and wife) use it in Win 8 -- in the metro interface, on the desktop, and in XBMC.

Works great, as does my HD Homerun Prime.

I don't see why not. Windows 7 and Windows 8 are quite similar.
