Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Good bye Windows 7, Hello Windows 8.1
Pros: Looking for a modern operating system, then look no further. Windows 8.1 incorporates the best from Windows 7 and Windows 8.0.

Benefits:

1. Faster Boot times (at desktop with all software loaded in 10 secs compared to 35-40 secs with Windows 7 running the same hardware.

2. Faster Operating system in general compared to Windows 7 (Windows 8.1 way more responsive than Windows 7)

3. More secure than Windows 7. (Microsoft did a great job removing unnecessary coding that had not been removed in Windows 7, this excess coding can lead to security breaches, viruses and malware infections)

4. Excellent Gaming Support.

5. Easy to use.

And yes you can create local or Microsoft account when installing the software.
Cons: None thus far. it's very dependable, stable and secure operating system compared to previous Microsoft operating systems.
Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favorite and don't listen to so called experts and en-titlist who believe things should be handed to them. These people have no clue about what they are talking about when it comes to windows 8.1. Most likely their opinion comes from inexperience and or laziness to learn new features in a operating system, therefore these internet trolls bash something they don't understand!

And just so you know, when you hear someone say Windows 8.1 does support desktop computer. Tablets features have been in every Microsoft operating system dating back to Windows XP. Windows 7 is no exception.

If your using a upgrade package to Windows 8.1, you must have a valid full software key prior to upgrading. According to Microsoft EULA that full software key is forfeited because you are upgrading the software (means your full software key can no longer be used since it tied to the upgrade).

Pros: I used the Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool after copying the dvd to an ISO. Installed off a USB 3.0 flash drive and the entire installation and setup took less than 10 minutes. This is a huge improvement over previous versions.
Cons: Ridiculous metro interface, useless full screen apps, annoying charms bar. Requires a bit of customization to get rid of the undesirable parts.

The ISOs are so easy to find and download now, but the pricing makes the physical media cheaper. All I really need is the key...but I had to wait a week to get it delivered along with the windows dvd since I'd save $25 doing it that way.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Windows 7 is by far the best
Pros: Windows 7 Ultimate is by far the best home PC OS you can get from Microsoft. I cannot stand Windows 8 and Vista had too many issues getting super slow.
Cons: None

Pros: Does "run" faster than 7. I like the design of the task manager better than 7. Quicker start up and shut down.
Cons: Metro / tile interface. This should have been an option, not mandatory. For those who use touch based equipment, offer the tile interface, for those who want a traditional desktop interface offer that as well. Choice is good, Windows 8 / 8.1 missed the boat on this...

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Great OS!
Pros: Great and Stable OS.
Cons: I have had the OEM since 2009 when I built a computer. I am in the process of building a new computer to release the one from 2009. Too bad I had to buy a new OEM now less than a year before windows 10.
