There's little that's wrong with Windows 8 out of the box, and even less with 8.1, keep it unless you don't like it for some reason, that's your prerogative.

Definitely update to Windows 8.1 with the latest Windows Updates. Microsoft has made a lot of improvements to making Windows 8 better for desktop users. That being said Windows 8 was still pretty good for desktop users out of the box.

As someone who has used these horrible touchscreen desktops, your arm will get tired FAST clicking and dragging all around a 20+ inch screen that is sitting vertically right in front of you. To say nothing of how dirty it would get from the smudges.

Touchscreens were designed for handheld and screens that are positioned more like a desk, not for vertical large screens.
