Though I don't like these kind of debates, 7 is better. 8 is a mess, the recent Service Packs improve it as always, all windows OS are a mess until the first service pack. For my needs 8 just doesn't cut it. Mainly because a lot of the software I run on a daily basis does not support 8 and after using it I found it too different to 8 and too tabletly. Which is fine if you have a touchscreen monitor, but I don't so it gets in the way of me using it.

But with news that Windows 9 wasn't good so they have rolled it into Windows 10 development, i'll wait till that comes out before leaving 7.

8 and 7 seem pretty similar apart from their design. 8 has some nice features like all the windows defender/security essentials are bunched together but apart from that I see no difference in games or general use.

The 8 start menu is pretty tablet-like as mentioned, but you can easily get used to it or completely circumvent it.

I'm still using win 7 ultimate. I'm in no hurry to get win 8. 7 is better than vista.
