Yozers, am investing some money in a new laptop for music production & entertainment on ze go and was wondering what's best...
Either Win8.1 or Win7? What do yall think?
Thank you please
Although I dislike Win 8's looks and not a fan of Metro, I suppose it's just another computer change to get used to plus being the (slightly) faster, more secure and (supposedly) stable OS out of the two, it's probably the more 'future proof' decision to go with... but...
Win 7 has it's XP mode which means I can run Re:birth and a few other old production tools, plus I like it better (tho I have only had limited use of Win 8 to date) and it's built for non-touchscreen machines. It's obviously going to be around for a number of years too, I be hearing internet chatter that it already be considered as the 'new XP'.
So, suggestions please and no, Tuoni/Biggleswick, I don't want to run anything other than a windows OS - too old and lazy to want to learn something totally new.
