I'm considering buying a new laptop, but I most certainly do NOT want Windows 8. I've seen it. I hate it. It's junk compared to Windows 7. My desktop is a Windows 7 machine that I originally got as a no-OS debranded HP (that originally had XP Media before I owned it). It's worked out well to use with the Daz loader. Of course with a desktop there's less risk. If you absolutely cannot find a compatible driver for a video or sound card or whatever, you can replace that hardware with hardware you know there's a driver for. If you must. I wanted to get a sense from people here who have done it. Have many people here gotten a Windows 8 PC and reverted it to 7? Did you have good luck or did you end up in driver hell?
