Windows 7 loses Microsoft support next year but Windows 8 lost support years ago. For that reason alone I'd say that Windows 8 is not better than Windows 7. I was frustrated with Windows 8 when it was the latest Microsoft product, and would have had a hard time choosing if that had been necessary.

You didn't ask, but a related question would be about Windows 7 vs. Windows 8.1. I chose to go forward as long as possible with Windows 8.1 because it will be supported three years longer and I have it configured to be pretty much like Windows 7.

From MS: Windows 8, and will reach end of Mainstream Support on January 9, 2018, and end of Extended Support on January 10, 2023. I had windows 8.1 on my work computer and had no problems. They changed me to a Win 10 only because one program that was needed couldn't be updated on 8.1.

Do you have a link for that? Pretty sure that's true for 8.1, but 8 was declared "dead" at least two years ago.

Look again. :) The dates you quoted are for Windows 8.1; I see nothing there about Windows 8 except for the sales dates.

If you have Windows 8, you can upgrade it to Windows 8.1 for free via the Windows Store tile button.
