AMD Catalyst 14.7 Releases, without Windows 8 Support?

Last night AMD released their 14.7 Drivers, which aside from the usual performance improvements and bug fixes has dropped support for and OS, not even an Old OS but Windows 8.

Users of Windows 8 can upgrade to 8.1 for free, so Windows 8 users need not fear this change. Those who do not wish to upgrade to Windows 8.1 will still be able to use AMD's older 14.4 driver and future windows 7 driver will be able to be installed on windows 8 but AMD will no longer create specific Windows 8 drivers.
