I want to upgrade from XP. Should I choose Windows 7 or 8? I've read that there are quite a few problems with Windows 8. Should I get the 32 bit or 64 bit version? Is the SP 1 version of 7 the only one available right now? I only use my computer for keeping records in Word documents, surfing the internet, and watching Youtube videos. I am currently using MS Office 2000 version. Should I upgrade to the current Office or Word version? Since the only program I use from Office is Word should I just upgrade Word? Old Office versions are vulnerable to malware from what I understand. I think I have seen free Office downloads on some sites. Is the current version of Office available as a free download anywhere? Who has the best price for Office and Windows 7 or 8 right now? Thanks for any replies.
