Don't mix facts with opinions.
I like WIN 7 too much to go to WIN 8. I don't see a reason to learn another new system that doesn't show me a reason do do so. But I always say, never say never. I wouldn't even think about it until it has had a chance to soak for six months or so.
I think you'd be better sticking with Windows 7. In my opinion Windows 7 is easier to use and a lot more thought has gone into the design of Windows 7 vs OS X.
Will tomorrow after work.
I use both and find this statement amazing, do you have anything to back it up.
So I am still on topic. I eventually will more than likely install Windows 8; no plans to upgrade, I still prefer Windows XP.
Yes - experience with both operating systems. To give you a short response, I really like Windows 7 and intensly disklike (hate may be a better word here) OS X. This is not an anti Mac sentiment - I used OS X with an open mind and found it a most unpleasent experience. But, each to their own and I know people who hate Windows and love OS X.
When something is upgraded, it does the job better than what it's replacing. Win 8 is not an upgrade. It's just a different operating system, one that's less suited for the desktop/laptop than the OS it replaces, aka downgrade.
"Poll" options merged in from jo3blac1's posting.
Everyone can vote now even if you already replied before the poll was available.
Nope, objectively speaking, in Computer Science, to upgrade a software = to replace it with a more recent version. The qualitative aspects are often subjective.
Their definition, not mine. More recent does not mean better, except to those who profit from the more recent.
Upgrade isn't a computer science term and noone_particular's definition makes a lot more sense. If you buy a newer but worse car it's not an "upgrade" it's just a trade in, it's a new car but not better.
Windows 8 is better in a significant number of ways but for something as complex as an OS better in some ways and worse in others can mean a lot for different users. There are objective improvement to security for example but there are noted issues some users have with the user interface.
I'll be upgrading (yes, for me it's an upgrade) in a few days.
I will stay with Windows 7, no need for an "upgrade".
downloading now...less then ten minutes left.
I did it today, its not simple as the "7" but its not bad as people say, not bad at all.
i bought W8 a few days ago.
i'm happy with it.
Thanks Mark, appreciate it.
Extremely happy with Windows 8.
Oh, I see, that was your opinion. I thought perhaps you had something that showed that "a lot more thought has gone into the design of Windows 7 vs OS X". I tend to think a lot of thought went in to both. I find the OS X experience a pleasant one.
I'm gonna stick with XP until I get a new laptop or tablet.
Still in an observation mode...let's see what others have seen and found. Or better else check for expert advice.
No, I will stay with Windows 7.
No, I think I'm gonna stick to 7 for a while.
Sprays clunks on keyboard, any questions
No, I will stay with Windows 7, XP, etc....
I feel like such a nerd. I stayed up late on release night to get the Windows 8 upgrade as soon as I could.
