Just ignore it for now and don't rush with the upgrade. Wait to see what happens with SP1, it usually polishes everything critical.

IIRC on Tom's Hardware site they've tested about 10 popular games on win7 and win8, there was practically no difference in performance. So why would a gamer switch to win8? Unless you're using a touchscreen monitor on daily basis…

Another thing that is worth knowing is that the patching already had two hiccups where the system started to behave irrational (PMS?). Honestly, I don't remember any problems with updates on my win7, although perhaps I've forgotten if those happened. Now just imagine playing Skyrim on win8 and not knowing if there is a problem with the game or win8 is to blame for an issue.
