    I don't have a preference. I run 8.1 Pro on my desktop and 7 on my laptop and both computers do all I need them to do.

    I agree with LittleJay and have both running. I like them both and don't feel there is any need to have yet another thread trying to argue the differences, it will only turn into a sniping match.

    The real reason that I wanna know is that I'm thinking of building a computer and I don't know whether I want Windows 8 or Windows 7.

    I think both are fine: I have 8 running on a new workstation and an old 2009 laptop just fine, and then there is 7 running on a re-purposed 2007 Mac Mini. All fine there too. Windows 8 seems faster and takes up a lot less HDD space than 7.

    Well, I know Windows 8, so I'll probably end up buying that. Is there any real difference between Pro version and Standard version of Windows 8?

    No. If you have to ask the question you don't need it. You would need it to join a domain otherwise not.
