    Windows 8.1 being buggy is an understatement to be honest. I would honestly choose Windows 7 as its more stable with it having a service pack on it. Windows 8 has it issues but less so then Windows 8.1.

    Windows 7 x64 fully updated would be the best option for now.

    Windows 8.1 x64 would be the best option in a few months. Remember it has just gone RTM, which doesn't mean that it is bug free! Hey, if all RTM OS's (regardless of whether it is Windows, Mac OS etc) were bug free, there would never ever be any need for any updates apart from adding new product support.

    Windows 8 really isn't a contender, since it is being replaced by Windows 8.1 which is a service pack/quasi new OS, despite what Microsoft and anyone else try and claim. It's why it is free! and literally replaces, not just supersedes, Windows 8. Labelling it as a new OS has much greater saleability, and it being a quasi new OS is because there are some other changes that aren't just bug related such as an updated display driver model etc.

    Windows 7 hasn't so good from the begining...OS have this reliability due to 4 years to development,fixes,updates.Windows 8.1 even is based to Windows 7 is in the same time something new (speaking about a new kernell...etc).So my advice for you is to keep Windows 7 while Windows 8.1 is not yet officially out.

    Then you have some hardware or software issue, most of us run windows 8.1 flawless.

    Here's my story: Been using Windows 7 SP1 x64 for a while, it's great but it's slow, even on my 8-core AMD FX Vishera. I'm somewhat limited because I only buy fanless video cards (Nvidia GT 430).

    Windows 7: It's pretty good once it gets up and running but slow to start up and shut down. It's my main OS at the moment. Pros: Almost everything is compatible, Cons: it's sometimes slower than I like. Summary: It's my go to OS.

    Windows 8: I've installed it on a test system and it is very fast, even on a Nettop-type system. It flies on my Vishera. Pros: Most of my software works with it, no driver issues and it's fast. Installation and startup are blazing fast, less than half the time of Windows 7. Cons: No Start Menu, have to install Start8 to use it although I am starting to get used to the tiles a little. Summary: Could be my new go to OS.

    Windows 8.1: Getting same speeds as 8.0, seems very similar usage-wise. Pros: Very quick, Cons: A lot of my software is not compatible, especially my brand new Kaspersky IS 2014, that is a deal breaker until probably GA. Developers should have been given the code at RTM so their software would be ready, I don't understand Microsoft on this one. Summary: Thanks but no thanks, for now, may change at some point. Definitely looks like a go to OS for the future.

    I hope this helps anyone who is in a similar situation. :biggrin:
