3 out of 5 eggsBe careful with 8 or 7

Pros: I can install windows 8 and did not need the key, it read from bios in a lenovo laptop (if I were you, I'd still get the key just in case)

Cons: not being supported for new chips so make sure if you buy this, its not gonna force you to wind up going win 10.

Other Thoughts: New skylake and others (new AMD too) are not gonna be supported in win 7 or 8 and only be able to use 10. With that said, as of this review, MS says support for win 7 with skylake only but still not 8 from what I read. So if you don't like 10, buy 7 but keep in mind, 1/2020 will be end of life for 7. Support for new chips and overpriced are my reasons for only 3 eggs. Would have been 2 but it read key from bios, so that's a plus.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't upgrade to windows 10

Pros: The 8.1 worked very good with no problems

Cons: Windows 10 will not upgrade correctly from this version and have had nothing but problems with upgrade and it will not let me uninstall it. It was suppose to take only 20 minutes to upgrade and ended up 8 hours and then made me do a clean install wiping out my 8.1 from hardware issues in windows 10 causing background screen flashing and then icons disappearing that's when it had to be done as a clean install and has been a nightmare since then. Printer won't connect and after this last update it wiped out my email and won't let me take out the update to get my device manager back. Does newegg really want to sell this? Also this morning one of Microsofts employees admitted that windows 10 is spyware watching and recording everything if a camera or mic is on the system and can't be shut off. Home invasion and invasion of privacy issues will be pursued against microsoft and you don't want in the middle of a class action lawsuit for selling windows 10.

Other Thoughts: Windows 8,1 and the pro version yes windows 10 never.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Yet, Do Not Get Windows 7!

Pros: Fast
Streamlined
Simple
Updates/ patches
Best yet for gaming
Looks clean and sleek

Cons: Apps screen ( you can delete apps you do not want and disable the live update ones)

Other Thoughts: Buy Windows 7? What kind of advice is that? Windows 8 is new, it takes some time to get accustomed to. I firmly believe the negative reviews are all people who cannot adapt to a new operating software. Its faster, it allows a gaming system to use less resources, it looks better, and any problems it had were fixed long ago. I have used Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8 is the best. I would never buy a new operating system in the first year it is released, give the developers time to fix bugs, but do not buy windows 7 a four year old system, you are risking the windows staff from cutting off support not to mention game developers and program developers support.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Microsoft OS, bought as filler until the windows 10 update. I like 8.1 though, so no complaints

Cons: No complaints

Other Thoughts: OS is personal preference, get what you like.

1 out of 5 eggsSomeone dropped the ball

Pros: Not sure I've been waiting to get this OS for eight business days........ Odd I payed for three day shipping on a $1500 order. I would enjoy writing reviews of some of the components I bought sadly that too will have to wait.

Cons: Still waiting on shipping.... I should have gone to Best Buy.
