Don't get pro, you don't need it.

8.1 should be fine.

Just go with this,

I'd normally recommend OEM but since the price difference is practically nothing might as well get a retail copy. You almost certainly don't need anything from Pro if you're not a business user.

NEVER! I can't live the bottom down life like you. I want it all: the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles. Sure I might offend a few of the bluenoses with my cocky stride and musky oders. Oh, I'll never be the darling of the so called "PC masterrace" who cluck their tougues, stroke their breads, and talk about "What's to be done with this NotQuiteAFreak?"

Get Windows 8, don't upgrade to 8.1

'Cause it's all so f***in' hysterical.

Yeah I don't plan on running any businesses anytime soon. But if I did want Pro though could I buy regular 8 Pro then upgrade to 8.1 Pro? Instead of buying that expensive version?

Why what's wrong with 8.1? (In comparison to 8)
