Choosing Between Windows 7 And Windows 8

Microsoft Help Forum

Microsoft Support

A lot is being talked about Microsoft’s Windows 8 and the subsequent Windows 8.1 update. More than positive reviews about both operating systems, we hear a lot of criticisms. The most frequently made criticism about Windows 8 family of operating systems (Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 update) is that they don’t include the traditional Windows features. Apparently, the critics are right in saying that Microsoft has missed the traditional features in Windows 8.

In the earlier Windows versions, you would directly go to the desktop when the PC is turned on. Conversely, in a Windows 8 PC, you will first go to the Start screen. You are supposed to choose an appropriate option from there to go further. Traditional Windows users found this change somewhat awkward. They felt that Windows 8 didn’t meet their expectations.

But, I have a few unbiased things to say about Windows 8 and the previous Windows versions. If you have a PC with a previous Windows version, say Windows 7, I don’t see any point in suggesting you to upgrade to Windows 8. There aren’t many changes or enhancements you can hope to see in Windows 8 against Windows 7.

Windows 7 is still advanced and sophisticated and allows you to do every task that you can do in Windows 8. The major difference you can see in Windows 8 against its predecessor versions in the integration of the modern user interface called Metro UI. According to Microsoft help forum, the idea behind integrating Metro UI with Windows 8 was to fit it with touch screen devices. Once you get familiar with this advanced User Interface, you can start to use your Windows 8 in the same manner you would use Windows 7.

Windows Versions

Microsoft Windows

The point here is, if you bought a new PC with Windows 8 preinstalled in it, let it be there. Take a bit of effort to get familiar with the new User Interface. If you are using Windows 7 in your PC, think twice before you upgrade to Windows 8 because you are going to pay the extra bucks to enjoy almost similar features that you can have in your current Windows 7 PC.

I must say Windows 7 Vs Windows 8 comparisons are a waste of time because they mostly mislead people to believe that either of the operating system is better than the other. Put your priorities first before you choose your OS because you don’t want to change it immediately. Consider visiting Microsoft help forum for any technical queries you have.
