I need to know if upgrading to Windows 8 is good or not.

Thats up to you. What kind of PC will it be running on? Foremost is it a touch-based PC? If yes then yes maybe you should. If you are used to Windows 7 and/or not on a touch PC I strongly recommend trying it first in a computer store. Its quite different to use and some people like it, I personally with some other people do not.

As far as technical reasons go there are really none if you come from 7. People say it feels faster but thats the same subjective matter as the new interface. I have not noticed a difference worth noting down using Windows 8 on a high end machine as opposed to Windows 7. (both fresh installs)

I would test it aswell to make sure its something you want on your computer. I did a fresh install of Windows 8 on my PC and it works fine. All those who go on about how Windows 8 is only for touch screen devices are wrong, it works well on devices that still have a mouse and keyboard.

Truth be told I think if I had a touch screen monitor I would never use it. I am happy with the scroll wheel on the mouse.

Again, whats good for me, is not necessarily good for you, so yes I would try it.
