    Windows8 v Windows7


    G'day,

    Can anyone point me to a laymans description of the primary differences between 7 and 8? 7 has just barely been out there, so why the move to 8? Is there some big breakthrough in multi-threading or soemthing else? How is 8 going to be better over 7 - has MS released anything on that?

    Give it to me...

    Regards,
    Golden

    Hi Golden and welcome to Windows 8 Forums

    I'm afraid we can't answer that just yet. We're still waiting to get our hands on the forthcoming OS.

    Thanks everyone....I wasn't sure whether there was even a sniff of anything out there, so though I would ask.

    We are all in the same dark room. Ha.:ninja:

    lets hope so, i think Microsoft made a mistake with vista, in my opinion windows 7 should have been vista, and trust me i am still using vista on 1 of my machines, so im not like some of the other vista "haters" who haven't even used the os.

    I don't think you can tell if Windows 8 is better than 7 - 8 is not out yet (even Beta). Hopefully, Microsoft is not going to provide a fail OS like Vista.

    It is always hard to compare different generation OSes, but one thing is true: M$ wont give us another Vista

    Have you even tried Vista? Nearly half of people trying to say Vista sucks actually never tried Vista before!
