Hi

Which one do you think is better? I currently use Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, however Im in doubt whether I shall upgrade to Windows 8.1.
So, in order to get my question answered I'll ask some questions

1. Which one performs better for Internet Browsing? To be more accurate, Mozilla Firefox 30.0
2. Which one has a faster startup / boot time ?
3. Which one has more features ?
4. Which one uses less CPU and RAM resources ?
5. Which one performs better in gaming ? ( though I dont really need this since I only play 1-2 games which are not that " heavy " )
6. Which one has better interface? ( I dont like " mobile phone/ tablet look, I pretty much like the windows 7 interface but I dont know about the interface of Windows 8.1 )
7. Last question, which one is better for personal use?

If you cant answer all the questions I asked it's alright, just please elaborate when you answer, also share source links if you can ( preferable but not a must )

Thank you in advance :)

with the default settings Win8 does boot faster since it put the system into hibernation mode.

It is easier to enter the troubleshooting / Safe Mode in Win7.
