    I use Windows 7 at my workplace and I still prefer it to Windows 8 at home. Looking forward to update 1.

    I have 8.1 on my Surface Pro and Vaio ultrabook. I love it.

    Even if you paid me I wouldn't go back to 7.

    WIndows 7 at work and pretty much Windows 7 at home (Primary OS). I dual boot with Windows 8 and Have a WIndows 8 Pro tablet. Sure I use Win 8.1 on the tablet for basic stuff but, my main desktop uses WIndows 7 and I dont really plan to change.

    I have a notebook that has Windows 8 on it when it came out! I decide to reformat the drive and put back Windows 7 on it! It took all day to do but it was worth it! I have WP8 in my Nokia 521 but I cannot get use to Window 8 on the desktop/notebook computer. My desktop has Windows 7 Ultimate. I been using a MacBook Pro 15" for a couple of weeks now - one of my Apple friends said to try it while he was on vacation. I really like it but not sure I want to spend $2,200 - double that amount for a Windows based notebook.

    Still use it everyday. Both my home machines, laptop and AIO are recent HP products and I bought Windows 7 for them. Will continue to use Windows 7 until Microsoft properly addresses issues with Windows 8 on traditional systems, or they decide to switch back to the traditional desktop environment for Windows 9. I really, really enjoyed that concept from a while back that made the rounds on the tech sites from Jay Machalani (???). If Windows 9 is anything like that, take my effing money now!

    I was still using Vista all the way up until Windows 8. So yeah, it's pretty understandable that people won't have made the switch yet.

    On my desktop,went from XP to Win7 Ultimate x86, then set up dual boot with Win8.1 x64 all within the span of about 2 months or so. I then found myself hardly using 7 as I REALLY like 8.1. With a mouse its simple in Metro. I didn't/don't like it with just a track pad though. In touch 8.1 is AWESOME!! I have a Lenovo Flex 10 "convertible" now and I just love it!!

    Wow Microsoft teased the new start menu and it's just like the concept from Jay Machalani! I like where they're going. Now I'm actually tempted to upgrade to Windows 8.

    I still don't get why people are still whining about windows 8/8.1, IMHO the tiles look fantastic and the functionality is amazing as well. Did Win 7 have a real store? Nope! There has been an improvement in the performance of my PC from Win 7. I think Microsoft should get rid of the desktop and add a new, modern file explorer. Desktop is the thing that doesn't go with the modern UI of Win 8. I have a BootCamped mac and now I rarely use Mavericks. Windows store has real games. I think people are just afraid of changes

    Because Microsoft tried to force a mobile/tablet OS onto Desktop users who use mouse and keyboard.

    IMHO the tiles look fantastic and the functionality is amazing as well.
    The tiles are great, they work amazingly on Windows Phone, and Surface. Why? Because they are touch devices. You honestly must be in denial if you prefer a touch first start screen to a mouse and keyboard first start menu. The new start menu in Windows 8.1 Update 2 is what they should have shipped Windows 8 with. I love the Modern tiles, but they just don't work with Mouse and keyboard at the moment.

    think Microsoft should get rid of the desktop and add a new, modern file explorer. Desktop is the thing that doesn't go with the modern UI of Win 8.
    NO!!!!! If they want to alienate almost every Windows user, they can go ahead. Get rid of the Desktop on Windows RT, but never on full Windows. To get rid of all the Win32 and .NET software ever created by removing the Desktop would be suicide for Microsoft.

    The start screen does the exact same thing as the start menu. But it does it much better. And windows 8.1 has huge performance gains. There is no down side but a slight learning curve that takes little time to get the hang of

    I disagree, because on my laptop, the transition to the start screen is slower than the opening of the start menu was. Even when running an XP VM on Windows 8.1, the XP start menu loads up faster than the start screen on 8.1.

    I don't hate the start screen, I just don't like it when using my mouse. Apart from that, I love Windows 8.1

    Yep, never liked 8, always though it was a more of a touchscreen os, I hate the UI. Everything works on 7 without issues and the bugs are fairly worked out as well so I see no reason to switch. Ill continue to use it until MS give me a reason not to which is something that doesn't seem like is going to happen anytime soon.

    For the most part I use windows 8 and get annoyed at anything else because I have gotten used to w8 and learned the quick way to everything... now that I know it I use it faster than 7 ever was for me... Now that's with a Roccat on a 40", touchscreens I like with windows 8 and always end up using touch on a laptop. Laptops with out touch? I HATE windows 8 on sh&ty tackpad windows machines... Lord god what is the problem with doing good big WORKING trackpads... Everyone! see the way Apple gets applause for their track pad? don't copy exactly but by god don't just do nothing......

    My PC runs on Windows 8.1 now but I have Windows 7 and Windows XP on virtual machines, in case I need to do stuff only available to those systems, or for fun.
