Windows 7, in my view Windows 8 is a dumbed down version of Windows 7, and Microsoft is forcing people to switch to Windows 8, for tablets, alright maybe you can get away with it, but who wants to go from a sleek professional looking smooth UI to a child's toy, we want to get things down, not look like we're in preschool.

I'd have to say 8. I know I'm going to get hate for all this, but I'm used to the Metro interface now, and the booting time is phenomenal. 7 is good too but I'm going to use 8 when it comes out, (depending on the price). If it's higher then lets say $40, I'm going to stick with 7 since I know that well.

There are a lot of positive features in Windows 8 that just keep showing up in reviews and posts. With that the $40 price tag talks pretty loud. As long as it gives enough user control to make my personal experience a good one; I could easily overlook the inappropriate front end.

One simple answer: Windows 8 is DOA even before it shows up on the market. Windows Vista was so bad that a lot of people never updated their XP Systems and XP, after 12+ years, is still running strong. I predict that Windows 8 is so bad that it'll keep Windows 7 alive, until windows 9 or 10 is introduced. Forget about windows 8 - use Windows 7. As for upgrading from Windows 7 to 8 on the same hardware - NOWAY NOHOW!
