I was going through some post regarding Windows 8, and ran across Chris Pirillo’s Locker Gnome post Should You Downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7?. The post was a response to a question regarding the purchase of a new PC without a touchscreen, and whether it would be a good idea to downgrade to Windows 7.
In the post he compares Windows 8 to Vista beginnings, but the best part is the advice quoted below.
What I would recommend anyone do is to try the new operating environment out for a few days to see if it works for you. There are plenty of people who prefer Windows 8 to Windows 7, and better is — and will always be — relative.
I think that is good advice, no matter what new OS is being discussed.
What do you think?
Have you tried Windows 8 yet? If so, let me know whether you are going to stick with it, or prefer to downgrade to something more familiar.
Note: I have not yet experienced Windows 8, but intend to check it out in the near future.
