It runs very smooth and uses memory very well, I have no problems with it. Just make sure that you have an up to date video card. :-) I’m running a Quad core with !6 Gigs of ram.

I´m using it, too, and didnt have any problem with it. Having no startmenu needs getting used to but there are also add-ons to bring back the old startmenu.

I work on win 7 and as long as is stable on my machine and latest adobe software do not need win 8 I do not upgrade it. Hate wasting time with software / drivers related problems.

Been having nothing but problems with windows 8 since I upgraded. Everytime I look things up I find hundreds of users having the same issues with drivers and things like that. Going to be switching back to windows 7 until they get all the bugs worked out.

You should never do an upgrade. Always do a clean install, hings usually go smooth after that. :-)

I always install a new OS on a PC which is not work essential. Install new OS and all your applications and games and see if everything works. If you’re happy than do it with your work PC.

Personally I see no reason to upgrade to Win8 – is there any benefit over Win7? Will it create a top selling trifold for me with an action? ;)

Cheers

Chris
