Windows 8 or Windows 7?
Jul 5, 2012

I'm poised to get some additional PCs (desktop units) upgraded from Vista 32 and 64 versions. Should I get Win 7 or Win8? I like the faster boot times and the supposed greater reliabitlity of Win7 over Vista. I have a robust home network -- both wired and wireless -- hoping to convert from "G" to "N" ASAP. I have about 6 PCs -- two already have Win7.

What I know at this point:

  1. Win8 settings from the free DL-able version and such will not carry over into the full, paid-for version.

  2. Win8 is due out sometime in 1-2Q 2013

  3. I have seriously gone through the Win7 versions and determined that I need Win7-Pro. Not Home and not Ultimate.

  4. I have no interest at present for anything like an Ipad nor any smart-phone.

  5. Other than Ipads and Smart phones, I cannot see any core advantages to Win8 over Win7 for my desktop PCs. Have I missed something?

Do any of you out there have and use Win8? What info could you provide me for my situation? Thanks!!
