SQL Express for Win8

Hello Experts,

Is there a SQL EXpress version for Win8?

I use SQL EXpress R2 2008 on Win7 with SQL Management Studio to serve a small office, but when I tried to run the 2008 installer it gave me compatability warning, which I did not want to risk.

I also tried SQL 2012, but there are so many versions available and did not know which to choose.

As well, if 2012 is it, does it have the same restrictions like 2 GB DB? Any other restrictions like number of simultaneous connections, etc?

Thank you,
