Everyone who answers could have a different opinion of which O/S is better. Personally, I like Windows 7 much better. I think that Windows 8 is the newest version of Vista – which I disliked intensely. The interface of Windows 8 is neither intuitive or particularly user friendly, and I cannot imagine it fitting into the corproate world, unless that gears more towards tablets. As with Vista, I will wait for the next O/S release .
