Hi

 

It is up to you to like Windows 8 or not. I repair computers for living. While majority of my customers are stick with Windows 7 some others really liked the new OS. So the best way to understand it's good and bad is to give it a try. You can download the 90 day trial version of Windows 8 enterprise from Microsoft site. Install it as a second OS in your system.

 

Here is a similar topic -http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/494540/disadvantage-and-advantage/

 

Here is two links with different opinion about Win 8

Stay with Winblows 7 till they fix 8 for desktop and laptop users. I do like the new Server O/S they came out with.

Windows 8:

Pros = Support for U-EFI 2.3.1 (Making it compatible with the next generation of hardware)

Cons = Irritating GUI changes, Fast-boot (Sneaky stuff MS, seriously read up on this before it causes you a head-ache if you multiboot), less compatible with software (some companies have had to quickly make compatible versions of their products causing their new releases to have irritating bugs...an example being the new release of Symantec Endpoint Protection which has startup errors on windows 8 when using their windows 8 compatible release)

 

Overall, I think the best way to put it would be that windows 7 is good (not perfect) and windows 8 is usable (very irritating at times).

 

Windows Vista is better than both of them. It has the least issues, looks the best, and is compatible with the most software of any release between XP and 8. 


Signature.

If going for a faster user customizable OS go for Windows 8
If you are a gamer and want to run all the new games, wait for sometime.

I installed Win 8 few days earlier and I am having my time to get use to. Apart from missing the start menu, I like it.
