We got Windows 8 but my suggestion is you at least try it in a store before you buy it.
We're unhappy in some ways that there isn't a start button.
I am unhappy that I have to use a Windows account to do business instead of my own email account.
Windows 8 makes the computer feel like some iPad or tablet which we could care less about.
The features we want aren't in a central location and having to learn a whole new operating system is not what we want.
I think everyone is being too nice to Microsoft. I've actually complained to Microsoft and they hung up on me and they don't care because they are all millionares and don't care what this customer thinks.
We're actually asking the opposite question as to whether we should get rid of Windows 8 and go with 7.
I currently have an ASUS laptop that came with Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed on it. I use my laptop for mostly basic tasks including schoolwork, music downloads, web surfing, minor gaming, video viewing, etc. Would it be worth upgrading to Windows 8? And will it really make a difference if my computer was integrated for Windows 7? I have the option of getting Windows 8 cheap, so price isn't an issue. Also, if I were to install Windows 8, is there any way of reverting back to Windows 7?
