    It's exactly like Windows 7 as far as gaming is concerned, in fact given DirectX 11.1 is only partially supported on 7 and 11.2+ is exclusive to Windows 8+ it's actually the better choice going forward if you want full feature support, it's mostly just high end stuff right now though.

    so very true, learn a little of the basics gets them further, but they don't learn

    sometimes i don't get people. that little knowledge saves you a lot of money in the long run

    I tell you what though, sometimes I'm utterly amazed by their ability to break an OS. I have no idea how someone that knows so little about a computer can do so much damage in so little time.

    I think security updates for Windows 7 SP1 (service pack 1) will continue until 2020 so you've got plenty of time to decide when to upgrade. :)

    Like the same business lady has a young child. The little kid decides to throw the laptop on the floor.

    ...and of course it gets busted... the metalic lining on the side is buckled with little green wires hanging out of a hole on the side

    Windows xp is not supported any longer, using it is a fairly hefty security risk.
