Thinking of upgrading to Windows 8 from Vista, looking for advice.

There is an option to do that during installation right? I seem to recall on the website it said I could choose what to keep?

That is what I would be using

Get W7 though, especially if it's cheaper - trust me you'll be glad in the end when you're not dealing with a OS made for touchscreens and children.


I think you missed these.

I did see those but it is far more expensive to go for 7 than it is for 8 for me.

Been using 7 since it came out, it is absolutely fantastic. There's no reason whatsoever to change to 8 if you're using 7, unless you're one of "those" that need to use the newest version even if it doesn't bring any benefits to it.

Windows 8 is just fine, I'm starting to prefer it over 7.

The differences between Vista, 7, and 8 are not that big. If you are getting a limited time good deal, sure. But just for the sake of upgrading? Might as well wait until Vista's eol.

Going to purchase very soon. I don't have a touchscreen but I believe that will not be a problem?
