So, there is a lot of debate going on about the better windows. Sure, you have the new, faster windows 8 that Microsoft has forcefully shoved down our throats with the old reliable windows 7. Personally, I miss the Windows XP era, which reminded me of a better and simpler time. But there are ups and downs to both windows, the biggest being the terrible interface for PC users in the new windows. What are you opinions about purchasing a new machine with Win8 pre-installed, against that of DOS machine. Also, what are you views on upgrading to Windows 8? Microsoft has definitely given a mixed basket with the new windows. In my opinion, I think there are sacrificing a thriving PC community to enter into the mobile and tablet industry.
