from completed build Storm Stryker Gaming Build

7 is a good OS, but let's be honest. New copies of 7 are only being used to upgrade to Windows 10 later this year. It might explain why its still so expensive, I only managed to get it for this price because I only bought the key and used a friend's disc to install.

Kind of want 8.1, but I guess I'll wait for Win10 to come out.

The God OS, for now. Let's see about Windows 10.

It is what it is.

It seems Microsoft gets a miss on one generation of Windows and then Hits with the next... after the Miss that was Windows Vista? Windows 7 is not only a hit... it hits a home run out of the ballpark. The multi-tasking of Vista combined with the single program performance of XP is a dream come true. The interface is built for speed and efficiency and it delivers on that front as well. Unless Windows 9 and beyond sparkles and shines? I don't currently see a reason I'd consider anything else for the time being.... I do also dabble in Linux, but it's still far from my main operating system... the lack of proper Multi-GPU support from both AMD and nVidia means it's fun to mess with, but lets me down as soon as I try and use my GPU's.

8.1 scares me. Crossing my fingers that the free Windows 10 upgrade will be quick and painless... like pulling a band-aid.

Best Windows to date. I install from USB 3.0 thumb drive. That said Windows needs to start optimizing their code. Windows is getting bloated and sluggish compared to what it was.

from completed build Client Build: Operation Blackbird

Windows 7 was chosen as this rig's operating system due to its impressive and easy to use interface, and because it is a generally comfortable experience.
