The Boot Camp drivers are not supported under Windows 8 as of yet. It's anyones guess when they will be.
I personally prefer Windows 7, and it will work fine in Fusion or Boot Camp.
Windows 8 is clearly optimized for for touch devices and tablets. I find it frustrating and gets in the way of productivity on machines without touch.
Not to mention it has ads in the default Metro apps, which is not cool for an OS that is designed for Enterprise.
