I'd go for OEM Win7 Home Premium x64. If you like Win8 then get that, but having downloaded and tried the Release Preview I hate it. Try it on a PC in a store first.

The Home Premium is cheaper though, and the only compromise is max 16GB RAM, which isn't a problem for most people.

Make sure you get the 64-bit version (retail contains both though).

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, definitely. Some of the games companies have hinted at making games and platforms for Linux because they don't like Windows 8, but that's some way off.

You definitely will not be at a disadvantage if you leave Windows 8 alone.
