I personally dislike windows 8. Stay with 7 because it's better and cheaper IMHO.
Cheaper, maybe. Better? In some aspects. Overall Windows 8 is a huge step up, in both protection, and speed. I'll give you that the Live tiles, and integrated "tablet functions" do suck nuts. But once you get the start button back, and get the full desktop back, it's phenomenal. The live search function is so friggen handy it's not funny. Same with the integrated MSE functionality.
Except for the fact that it still sucks and is an utter pain in the ass for people who know computers. Way too many damn steps to get into the BIOS. It should be hit the del key when the computer starts up. Not wait for the computer to start up, go through four different menus, and then reboot the computer.
Plus the fact that it's still too new, and too much stuff doesn't work with it, like my video card and printer, plus the lack of a start menu, plus the fact that it sucks, and some other stuff, tells me that Windows 8 is a piece of crap.
Windows 8 is a tablet OS they tried to port to a desktop so they could come out with a new OS without doing anything. It was an awful idea, and it's an awful OS when used on a desktop.
I utterly despised every second I had to use Windows 8, but it was either Windows 8, or no computer. But I switched to Windows 7 just as fast as I could. I still used Windows 8 for about two months, and it was a long 2 months.
I bought a ton of games from Steam with Christmas money, and wasn't able to play them until I finally installed Windows 7 yesterday, because Windows 8 is a piece of crap and doesn't work with Steam. I'm so glad I can finally play my games.
