I was able to successfully install and access Oracle 11g Express edition (windows 32 bit version software) on basic windows 8 64 bit OS in my laptop.
I came across one message saying that some xyz.......KEY_XE.reg file could not be found under Temp directory, I just clicked ok and I see installation completed successfully and services are up and running able to access the database schemas.
I got my new laptop and before installing I updated the OS with all latest patches from Microsoft and started downloading/installing the Oracle 11g XE.
Is there any thing else to test like a scenario/issue which you might have came across to make sure its really working??
I know the underlying fact from Oracle saying it may or may not work and I agree considering its a free version.

Certified MS OS versions for 11gXE are documented - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17781_01/install.112/e18803/toc.htm#BABGGAJA
Currently there is no Oracle software certified for Win 8 or Win 2012 - future Oracle versions are expected to be certified - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/windows/tech-info/sod-oracle-db-win8-win2012-1853201.pdf
I expect that 12c version of XE (if there is one) will likely be certified with Win 8
