5 out of 5 eggsIt's Windows.

Pros: Stable and fast on my build. As a first time builder and hater of Windows 10 this works great.

Cons: Little confusing at first coming from Windows 7 but after some adjustment time is more than adequate for everything I need and I enjoy knowing I can upgrade to a touchscreen at some point

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Windows

Pros: - Easy to install
- Compatible with my stuff
- Free upgrade to Windows 10 should I ever feel the need

Cons: - The odd bug here or there, but much better than some other versions of Windows I've used

Other Thoughts: I like Windows 8.1. It's easy to use and it works with all of my software. Could it be better? Sure. Does it take some getting used to? Of course it does. You can't expect to know how to use something without educating yourself first. This is being used on a dedicated Audio Recording machine running Pro Tools 12, Audition, Waves plugins, Kontakt, SSD4, a Focusrite interface and various other audio tools. Until Avid officially supports Windows 10 for Pro Tools I'm stuck using Windows 8.1...but I'm okay with that. It works and I haven't really had any issues.

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.
