Windows 8 is about to be released and I have a few questions and concerns as I have been reading a lot of comments about this upcoming operating system.

Will they be releasing Windows 8 with Hardware Certification Requirements? Will they start building computers designed to ONLY run with Windows 8?

No they didn't released computers that are designed for windows 8. Unlike google chromebooks Windows 8 is compatible for x86 hardware mainly desktop computers.

Windows 8 minimum hardware requirements are the same as windows 7. Previous program of windows will also compatible.

Windows 8 Certificate requirements are designed to tablets and convertible devices but it does not apply to PC.
