Re: Windows 7 vs Windows 8

A rather strange question. Since Windows 8 was released on October 26, 2012, the past tense (What was different) would have been better.

Anyway, https://www.google.com/search?q=windows+8+vs+windows+7 tells a lot. But you might have to actually work with Windows 8 to find out why it wasn't popular.

Frankly?

We don't have any PCs at office, home or shop that runs those anymore.

I can tell you that either can a PAIN IN THE ACUTE ANGLE to clean install today as today's hardware rarely has drivers for these old Windows.

My take....

Considering that Microsoft no longer supports either Windows 7 or 8 it seems a little silly to try to do anything with either version, short of upgrading to Windows 10 or 11 (if your computer meets the minimum requirements).

The last good thing about Windows 8.

Is that we were able to get a free upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 8 last month.

It's good for something!!!
