SO DEAN'S A DONUT PINCHER AGAIN

A donut puncher?

Oh yeah, this Christmas I got nothing but cash so I used it to get a new 1920X1080 HD Monitor and Windows 8.

During the winter sale on Steam I also got Arkham City GOTY, Mass Effect, L.A. Noire and Deus Ex Human Revolution.

That's pretty cool. How do you like Windows 8? I'm a little hesitant to consider using it.

I've also played all of those games you mentioned and it's money well spend. They're fantastic. LA Noire and Deus Ex being my favourites of those games.

WHO DARES TO REMOVE MY SOPHISTICATED COMMENT?

Not me, good sir.

It's essentially 7 but with an oversimplified interface that seems more appropriate for tablets and touchscreens but the internal workings are the same with a couple of components installed, you can get the start button back easy, something a lot of people had a difficult time adjusting to.

That being said, fewer crashes and faster load times are nice but I hate having to open up an entirely new program just to view photos, watch videos or listen to music because the windows for some common accessories have been ditched.

So, which do you prefer, 7 or 8? It was my intention to install Windows 7 on this new PC I plan on building, but if enough people seem to think that it's worth going with Windows 8, I might go with that.

I initially would've gone with 7 because it has a more familiar interface and 8 doesn't. But it can be solved if with a few adjustments found on cNet.com. We only installed it because the starter pack was up for $40 and like I said, the internal workings are all pretty much the same so worry about supported OS hasn't been too much of a problem so far. Hotline Miami is the only game in my library that doesn't run anymore.

I have legal access to free copies of Win7 and 8, so right now I'm thinking it might be best to stick with 7 for a while and then upgrade once Win8 has been around a little longer. I just can't help thinking I'll prefer 7.
