    Windows 8 is really designed to work best with touch screens and tablets.
    The whole interface has been redesigned for touch, tap, drag, and play. :)
    If you don't have a touch screen or a Windows Surface stick with Win7. :D

    Ya basically what Quiver said, I am thinking about upgrading to a non touch screen laptop just to mess around with it, if I do so I will let you know what I think of it.

    As far as I have heard all they really improved is a few features that you wouldn't notice unless you were a hard core computerer. But aside from that the obvious is the design, but other than that there is not really a reason to upgrade to it.

    Quiver you nailed the right answer. You had the best answer. Obviously, the Windows 8 is using tiles for easy access on software and programs. This Operating system will work best on touch screen desktops, laptops and tablets. It will let you press, drag and play all at once. If only I have the latest Sony Vaio, I might have experience the awesome features of that OS.

    Windows 8 looks quite different from Windows 7. This is because it is designed to work with touch screen computers and tablets.
