Has anyone tried Dink on Windows 8? v1.08 lags like an infernal beejeebus for me.

I'm not sure if it's an OS problem or not, but I've got everything pretty much up to date, and FreeDink and Dink HD seem to run just fine.

I'm running Windows 8 and I haven't really noticed any lagging from 1.08 or aural+. Though that's from very light playing. Is it lagging at something specific or just in general?

Well, it's not worse than Windows 7, for whatever that's worth. Other than the fact it lacks a start menu by default, so I had to get an "app" for that. Oh, and the fact programs are called "apps" now.

The game lags constantly for me. Even the mouse cursor on the title screen is sluggish.

It's identical to Win7 actually. Except more square-ish edges on the windows.
