Windows 7 is great, quick, smooth, looks nice and very reliable, a whole different ball game to Vista.
Windows 7 was everything that Vista should have been but wasn't. Those who held on to XP and waited until Windows 7 was "mature" seemed to make the best choice.
Given Microsoft's rather chequered history with new operating systems, it is probably prudent not to upgrade to Windows 8 unless, for whatever reason, you have to - at least not until a lot more is known about its compatibility with existing software and stability with existing hardware.

I have worked in IT with PCs since windows 3.1 I recently installed windows 8 pre release to test ie 10 html5 drag drop functionality. It took me a while to even sus out how to shut it down. Was pre release though I guess.
It looks great if you want the functionality of touch screen technology, but as an amateur photographer who likes a clean screen to look at, I have to ask why???
I don't want dirty greasy fingerprints and all the other detritus that it would leave on my monitor, so for the time being I think I'll be sticking with a mouse.
It's an operation system designed with mobile phones and tablets in mind, which is where I sure it will excel.......But only if you can get users to switch from Android which is free!
I haven't been able to work out Microsoft's business strategy on Win8 and reckon they'll find everyone sticking with 7 or earlier......Pretty sure it will turn out to be a flop rather like Vista was.
