Hello Clinton Gallagher,

 Thank you for your interest in JustDecompile. 
To answer your questions, Yes, you can use JustDecompile to open Windows 8 assemblies.
I have made a sample video, demonstrating how to open Windows.Web.Syndication. You can see it here.
This particular *.winmd file doesn't contain code, so that's why you see only signatures.
Should you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Greetings,

Thanks Yordan, the USB on my Win8 machine burned out yesterday (no keyboard) so I can't get a good look at the moment but what was meant by not being able to view code?

Hello Clinton,

 I am sorry for any misunderstanding I might have caused. My point was that since this particular file contains no MSIL code, all methods will have empty bodies. The file is used only as a reference for the .NET assemblies, which want to use functionality from Windows Runtime components. The logic that makes the component work is placed in an unmanaged assembly and this can't be processed by JustDecompile.
Good sources of further information on WinMD can be found here and  here.
I hope this gives at least some clarity into the situation. Nonetheless, don't hesitate to contact us, should you have any further questions.

Kind regards,
