After nearly 13 years, Microsoft is calling an end to support for Windows XP on April 8.  This means a lot of people have a big decision to make.

Without support or security updates your computer will be left vulnerable to cyber-attacks. 


This leads to the question “Is it better to upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8?”


Both Windows 7 & 8 are much more powerful operating systems than Windows XP.  They both have major advances in security.  Windows 7 is proven and offers you the familiarity of what we know and expect from Microsoft.  Windows 8 is new and exciting, with a brand new style.  The look and feel of Windows 8 is like nothing we have experience with Microsoft before.


The most important factor to consider when choosing your new operating system is compatibility. Before purchasing the upgraded system you need to check with the applications that are most important to you.


Ultimately the final decision needs to be made based on your applications and your personal preference.

Windows 8 is a nightmare. Don't go there. It came on two machines, a laptop and a desktop. The laptop has a touch screen and the desktop does not. I NEVER use the touchscreen and bypass the tiles. But, even the "desktop" is fatally compromised. After several months with both, I despise it equally on both machines. It's worth the extra money to downgrade to Windows 7. While it masterfully frustrates and complicates my life, it fails to add even one single thing I want to do. Skip this abortion. Perhaps Widows 9 will be worth having.
