All Windows operating systems (32-bit/64-bit) are supported by Quantum GIS. I could install QGIS on latest Windows 8.1 Preview too.

  • Anyone tested on Windows RT?

It works on XP, Vista, Windows 2003, Windows 7 and 8

  • Is there a link to those system requirements from the QGIS documentation that can be included?

    @PolyGeo, looks like they don't publish formal hardware/software requirements. Came across this 2011 email on QGIS user mailing list from this Stack GIS answer
