You definately won't be dissapointed with Windows 7. Imo its Microsoft's most complete and stable build since Win 2K. It's fast and never crashes.
I might just stick with Win 7 for the next couple of years, since a lot of the features in 8 doesn't really belong in a desktop OS imo.
The Win 8 Taskman, is so far the only awesome thing I've seen from the new OS
I have been using 7 on my laptop for quite some time and I agree that it is a great OS.
The Win 8 Taskmanager is a plus, as you mentioned.
Is this any different from Windows 7 OEM? http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Premium-64bit-System-Builder/dp/B004Q0PT3I
It is perfectly good and legal to use System Builder on my personal PC since I AM the system builder?
