OK guys lets be honest which one would you prefer and why?
please list the pros and cons as well.
I would prefer Windows 8.
Just try Windows 8 in Lumia 920. You will forget everything.
Hmm, currently I am moving back to Windows 7 but Windows 8 is not that bad. A few days of practice and you will be a pro with the start screen.
Seriously this question is for you to decide what you like. If you hate the new UI like me then stay with Windows 7. I do not like the UI of desktop in Wn8 and also has compatibility problems with legacy apps. So moving back to Windows7.
Windows 7 diehard
windows8 = windows7 - start button + $$ + speed + hours of learning time/adaptability/frustration + tons of security fixes
Win8 for me by all means!
There might be some compatibility problems with software or drivers in Win8 but I still choose it because of the better security and new features (new win explorer, task manager and so on).
I also feel that it is faster than win7.
Didn't take much time learning at all once I got the start button back (with start8) so that I do not have to use/see the new Metro style at all.
What about WinXP
Anyways I still like the good 'ol ubuntu and winxp
Yeah akira. Windows XP was great but Windows 7 as a replacement was better and mainly was an acceptable replacement.
The only thing I dont like in today's Ubuntu is unity. I still like KDE and Gnome 2.
I am also not a big fan of the non aero windows 8 desktop,but windows 8 does have its upsides as well. for one thing the boot performance is super fast, I did notice around 40-45% faster boot times with windows 8 on SSD. and about SSD windows 8 is SSD aware so it optimizes automatically for SSD's. and the metro apps are good once you get used to them as well.
Windows 8 for me. It lighter more secure and I find it a pleasure to use.
Windows 8 for me too, I don't know what the fuss is all about with this system, really easy to learn and navigate just a change ,maybe people too slow who knows
Windows 7 for me
Have had driver corruption issues with win8
Currently dual-booting win7 and win8 (pre-installed)
Now I am leaning towards Windows 8.1 and not really 8. 8.1 seems to bridge the gap well.
I think both are equally good, but I prefer windows 7
experience using Windows 8 on my laptop is quite good, rarely crashes
Windows 7 here.
Windows 8(8.1) is very good,same as Win 7 maybe a bit faster :)
I find Windows 8 is fast from booting to logon but when I restart the PC, the booting to logon goes horribly slower than what I got with Windows 7. Even my old PC with Windows XP can do better that that.
Boot-time is the only fast thing in Windows 8. Rest Windows 7 is a more stable and mature OS. If you are working for productivity and business you should be taking Windows 7. For a casual home user Windows 8 will do it. I also dislike the fact that microsoft has decided to withdraw service packs.
I have both on a dual boot but hardly ever find myself using Windows 8.Windows 7 is the OS businesses and Government agencies use and if some are still using XP they are now upgrading to Windows 7.I don't think you will ever see Windows 8 used in this setting.I see it really as an OS for the home user that has a touch screen PC or Tablet.The only reason I have Windows 8 is because the price was right $0.00,otherwise I would have taken it for a spin and got rid of it.
I agree that with some tweaks Windows 7 can address the faster boot time of Windows 8.However the faster boot is not really an issue with me and hardly a reason to switch from 7 to 8.
I hope they do a better job with Windows 9 or whatever the next OS is
Re: RE: Windows 7 or Windows 8?
Even I have Win7 dual boot on pre installed Win8
Win7 is better in gaming than Win8 and that's the deal for me

I still have not tried Windows 8 well fr the very reason that my pc may not accomodate Win8 though my components are Win8 ready. Have not a license also for it. Been reading on it and I tend to see them in grr's post. If I had a new laptop maybe I'll stick with it for a while see if it grows on me....
Re: RE: Windows 7 or Windows 8?
totally agree with you.. XP was awesome but moved to Windows 7 when I was given 64 and 32 bit OS discs when I bought my kids a laptop each for Christmas and installed to take it for a spin to check what was under the hood..didn't go back to XP.... Father-in-Law has Windows 8 and when I took it for a run I was left deflated

I prefer Windows 7. Windows 8 is just a sucked testing edition as Vista.
Its a wrong impression people have that Vista is a crap. It is as good as Windows 7. I have used Vista with SP1 and SP2 as my main OS for about 2 years even when Windows 7 was available.
Yea Vista sucks very boring OS. Windows 8.1 currently the best because it comes with a lot of useful softwares pre-installed + WIndows Store Apps and has a rocking boot time (less than 7 secs with 4GB of RAM, no SSD,.. even with Antivirus installed(ESS)).
And yes the most secure OS of Microsoft supported completely by them.
i have not tried windows 8 so far but windows 7 is good enough for me, no matter office or entertainment
