Windows 7. It's on my work desktop, my home desktop, and my home laptop. And that's not going to change.

 

There is a slight possibility of me getting one of the new Lenovo y50's when it finally comes out which will be a Windows 8 machine, but it all depends on the reviews.

I'm currently running Windows 8.0 with Stardock's Start8 and ModernMix. The last two programs are an integral part of the OS, so I feel I should mention them.

 

I ran 8.1 for two months but I did not like it, so now I'm back to 8.0. Perhaps 8.1.1 will be enough to tempt me to "upgrade" again.

 

I really disliked being forced to sign on to Microsoft with 8.1. I also found it conflicted with some of the desktop programs I ran, and it seemed a little flaky (actually flickering) with my video card. And it seemed slightly slower.

Win 8.1 for the time being. will weigh my options on Windows 10. see what becomes of the OS and let them get the kinks out. or probably will converse with Toshiba about an upgrade option for this laptop. probably the best option due to driver needs

 probably a driver issue. I've had no issues with Win 8.1.
