I'm running LibreOffice 4.01 on Windows 8 64 bit now (Samsung laptop OEM install). It runs but not well. Not sure if it's autosave or what the problem is , but it frequeuntly freezes and stops responding four about 30 seconds, then resumes again. Sometimes it crashes and does the whole document recovery thing.

Windows 8 may seem to look a lot like Windows 7 when you disregard the metro screen, but under the hood it seems quite clunky. I was told it'd run faster than Win 7, which it does - when it's not pausing everything to run something in the background. Frequently find the synaptic mouse pointer stops working for awhile etc... If you've got the choice, stay with Windows 7 if you want to use Libre Office.
