Windows 8.1. I was on Windows 7 pro. Upgraded to Windows 8 and didnt like it. Now I am running windows 8.1 pro and it is a lot better than Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Okey, but i really like the start button on 7, and there is no such thing on 8.1 with the same functions, and i dont really like the theme.

Hi, I got windows 8.1 and I got used to it in a day, it doesn't matter with the start button, you'll realize it later, and also, the startup on Windows 8.1 crazy, it takes like 10 seconds then you're at your desktop

There really is no 'best' when it comes to those 2 OS's. Sure 8.1 will play games upto 5%ish faster, but that only generally equates to @2-3 frames better performance, not something humanly possible to see, only a benchmark can see that.

It's all really going to boil down to what you as a user are most comfortable using.

Windows 8.1 does have a start button. And it performs very similar to Windows 7.

n3cw, but the start button only opens up the metro, not the little thing in the corner.

And Karadjgne, thanks.

If you right click on the start button in Windows 8.1 it opens up the menu similar to Windows 7.

There is a add-on for 8.1 it will give your desktop a more 7 look and that included a start button.
