    I wouldn't suggest switching to 8.1 right now till Windows releases some updates to it. For me it is a bit better than 8 for sure, but there are a lot of cases where people are having various problem with 8.1 that they didn't have with 8. I say stick with 7 for now, plus you don't have to deal with the shitty start screen.

    Well, it's been proven to be faster, but, it's buggy as hell!

    Aslong as you only use it for basic stuff (like me) gaming, chrome, Skype and a few others, I've found it to be quite fine.

    Gaming isn't exactly basic stuff! I would consider basic stuff as Internet browsing and Word processing.

    Well, It's never interfered with my game of Diablo, WarFace and whatnot so I'd say it's fine

    Fuck Win 8. It's made for a tablet/Touch screen, not fucking PC which has no touch screen.

    Honestly, Win 8 is a clone for Win 7, Just added some stupid options, stuff, and some speed tweeting, nothing else.

    I'm using Win 7, and I will stick to it till proper Win 8 comes out.
