Re: My Current Configeration
First...any games that are made for Win8, will certainly run fine on Win7 as well. I cannot imagine anyone building a game that will only run in Win8, especially in light of the fact that Win7 will be the dominant OS for years to come.
Second...It is my personal opinion that most businesses, especially large companies, will not invest in Win8, anymore than they invested in Vista. Most businesses maintained Xp until Win7 became a clear winner. I think Win8 offers nothing in the way of improvements, features, or Kernel changes that would make me, or anyone I know invest in it.
Of course, there are a lot of folks that just have to have the latest OS no matter what. However, most people with whom I've discussed Win7 vs. Win8 agree they they have no reason to migrate to Win8.
In fact, I just bought a new laptop a few weeks ago, because I wanted the Win7 OS, and I knew if I waited much longer, I'd be forced into Win8. The laptop came with a coupon, which would allow me to purchase Win8 for only $15.00, and I'm still not getting it.
