Windows 8/8.1 if you are using it for home. W7 pro for businesses. That is my combo.

I went from Windows XP to Windows 7 with no problems whatsoever. At work, I still use an XP machine but they're gradually being retired and replaced with Windows 7 computers. I haven't heard of anyone complaining about the Windows 7 systems so far.

As long as you don't mind lost productivity and disgruntled frustrated employees by all means go with Windows 8/8.1.

You both don't have accounts. And you're both from CT.

AMEN to the above! Everyone should read the article in the New Yorker where "Mr" Gates NOR his assistant could get W8.1 to perform, so he went back to W7 himself. W8 is a REAL pain!

This is an awful description of what happened because it implies that he [Bill] had difficulty using Windows 8.1. If you were on the MSFT call on Friday, he detailed what happened. The Windows 8.1 update to Windows 8 failed and put the computer in a state of constantly rebooting. However, had been using Windows 8 just fine prior to that and happily [according to his AMA last year].

Since that computer was shot, they gave him another computer to use that happened to have Windows 7 on it. He expects to have a working Windows 8.1 computer this week.

Windows 7 does have a learning curve when coming from Windows XP.
