whats wrong with windows 7 ?
Do you have a real reason to change the OS ? Like a functionnality you really need ?
Windows 8 have nothing over 7 really.


I heard games like Battlefield 4 have a performance advantage while running on windows 8. Faster OS boot times. There's also a windows 8 exclusive game - Halo Spartan Assault.


Lol Halo spartan assault is not worth upgrading to windows 8 for, If you have 7 there is no need to upgrade

It is functionally better.


It's functionally better when it takes more mouse clicks to get somewhere.

Nah.

No. Its more of a new coat of paint then a meaningful tune-up. If I could switch for free I'd probably go ahead. For actual money though? Win7 is still fantastic and very widely supported (and will continue to be for a long time). Its like the new XP.

Not that 8 is the new Vista. Metro ain't my cup of tea but at least it flippin works.

Windows 8 is flat out better than Windows 7, but at the same time it's not worth the $100 to switch.
