Experience: 9 Months


No desktop pinned on task bar
No start menu
I would just never go back to windows 7, this windows is much faster.

Experience: 60 Days


its windows
its windows
people on the internet complain about windows 8.1, well, its not that bad, the backend of windows is greatly improved and everything runs smoother. i can access everything i need via rightclicking the 'start' icon, and search still sort-of works. in a world where everything is constantly changing, complaining and not even attempting to adapting to a new os is just being childish.

Experience: 4 Days


Reasonably priced compared to retail
Faster than Windows 7
Better than Windows 8
None that I can think of
A lot cheaper than the 8.1 Pro 64Bit Microsoft has in their online store, and even better it was on sale when I bought it :D

Feels a lot faster and more driver friendly than Windows 7.
A lot easier to navigate Start menu/windows with close/minimize and start/desktop switching compared to the Windows 8 mess though installed startisback anyway because I had keys left over.

Experience: 20 Days


Fast, current, impressed me!
Takes a little getting used to... other than that, none I've seen yet. Dont like the tile view (but its very simple to just choose not to use it and boot directly to desktop view)
There's SOOO much griping about Windows 8, and from what I've read things like the start button not being there was probably one of the biggest problems with 8.0 in my opinion. I never did use 8.0. However, in 8.1, its got a start button, and being able to boot directly to the desktop makes it feel/look alot like windows 7 (Which I loved by the way!). I do however feel that 8.1 is good replacement and worth the money as my pc boots up a fair bit faster nowadays that it used to with 7 and the fact that Win 8.1 is current is not a bad thing.
Highly recommended for those looking to upgrade to a decent OS.

Experience: 1 Months


-windows 8 under the hood is faster than windows 7
-metro sucks. use something like ex7forwin8 or classic shell ontop of metro
Good OS under the hood, but metro craps all over the place

Experience: 2 Months


fast and sleek
- UI could've been designed less bland
Lovin Windows 8.1. I picked up Windows 8 for my previous PC when it was first released. I couldn't resist getting the latest Retail OS for only $69. I can honestly say that I've yet to run across any issues with Windows 8 that would cause me to hate it. I'm really loving the boot to desktop feature in 8.1. :)

Experience: 6 Weeks


Better and faster than Windows 7
Windows 8.1 is the last version of windows 8 and this oem version vs retail cost less.
It faster than windows 7 and I love it.
If you built a new pc is the operation system you need.

* Boots really fast
* Modern UI not so friendly
I upgraded to windows 8.1 from windows 7. Windows 8.1 seems to be booting up a bit faster and feels lighter than windows 7. Modern/Metro UI needs a bit of time to get use to it. Overall, it works fine.

Experience: 2 Weeks


System seems to run a lot faster than Windows 7
Have to install a pile of mods to get it usable to navigate properly. Hardware RAID card boot issues. Some compatibility problems with software (getting better within the 2 weeks running though)
Secure boot causes hardware raid cards to boot to fast in UEFI mode and then the drivers don't load properly so you have to uninstall and re-install when you first boot...no fix. I have an Adaptec 8605E controller and I can ONLY use legacy mode and secure boot disabled if I want it to boot properly with windows, which is annoying because then you have the "Secure Boot is not configured properly" watermark that ATM you cant "hide"

Experience: 7 Days


Can boot to desktop
Seems to be a touch slower than 8
Did the free upgrade to 8.1 Pro online thru MS Store and a week into it and all seems well. With Classic Shell in place, even my wife is happy. It seems to boot slightly slower than Win8 did, by 3 or 4 seconds or so on the Intel 510 SSD.

Seems OK!

Product Information  

Windows 7, only better:

  • Windows 8 is built on the rock-solid foundation of Windows 7, but it's been improved on all fronts.
  • You can install Windows 8 on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7, and you'll love how it works on new devices, too.
  • Windows 8 was designed with Windows 7 apps in mind, because you probably have older apps you need to use.
  • In addition to the new look of the Start Screen, Windows 8 incorporates the desktop that you're familiar with.
  • Think of the desktop as one of the many apps you can run in Windows 8.
  • In the desktop, you'll see all the settings, devices and features you used in Windows 7-and you can run the desktop apps you ran in Windows 7, too.

Cloud-connected with your Microsoft account:

  • Sign in to your Windows 8 device with your Microsoft account and you're immediately connected to the people, files and settings you care about.
  • Your PC comes to life with all the things that make Windows yours, including your Start page, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favourites.
  • You can connect your favourite services to your Microsoft account, too, like Hotmail, Messenger, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and more.
  • And you can immediately get to your photos, docs and other files, whether they're on SkyDrive, Facebook, Flickr or other services.

It's all about the apps:

  • In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse great apps, all grouped in easy-to-find categories.
  • We highlight great apps for you and provide quick access to frequently downloaded apps.
  • You can also see how other people have rated apps.
  • You'll always know what's interesting, new and popular.
  • You won't have to worry about buying something you don't want because you can try before you buy, if the app supports it.
  • If you try an app and like it, you can buy it and continue using the full app with no interruption.
  • You won't waste time or lose your place.
