Minecraft isn't a good measure of PC capability :P You can play Minecraft on a toaster. XP has been ultimately Obsolete for a while now, most companies have shifted to Win7 and MS will can their support for it soon.
either way, Welcome
Yup, all very true. I've had enough experience with Win8 to know I do not like it.
A friend of my has done extensive benchmarking between the final RTM version of Win8, and Win7, and found absolutely no deference in performance between the two operating systems.
Of course, every one is entitled to their own opinion. As for me, I'll skip it and wait for Win9, or what ever comes next.
Just like XP lasted for a number of years beyond M$ expectations, so will Win7, but all good things must come to an end.
