Summary: I recently bought parts for my new rig and I was trying to decide which Windows to buy. Win8 is praised for its quick boot times under SSDs, but some users seem to dislike it when it comes to its looks and crash issues.
Pros: Reliable, Older database of knowledge than Win8, Fast when installed on SSD
Summary: I noticed in the specification it says it will install in either a 32 bit or 64 bit CPU. If true it like getting 2 for the price of 1. This is designed for the home hobbiest who likes to build his or her own computer.
Summary: I bought this for a friend who bought a new laptop with Windows 8.1 OS. Windows 8.1 is a poor substitute for XP which was the best OS Microsoft has produced. Partition and install windows 7 sp 1 was relat8ively easy. It bears no resemblance to xp but is acceptable in terms of speed and features.
Summary: I have to wait for Windows 10 to see the difference and the added features. Windows 7 is good but very sensitive to malware. I cannot increase the amount of lines in the menu due to malware. I am stuck.
Summary: I needed to upgrade from XP, and found this killer deal with an extra refund. Trick to refund, is you have to destroy your DVD package to get the label off to mail in. Now you have to store the Win7DVD and booklet separately (unless you have another package case).
