I shall start off saying I am working with windows Vista on this computer. I have XP on my lappy and my backroom computer that is not connected to the internet but is a backup in case this one goes on the fritz.
A friend/acquaintance is getting a computer and the guru that I sent him to is recommending win 8.1 to him. He has never had a computer. I am the closest thing to a computer guru that he knows. Is 8.1 approximately like my droid phone (droid x2) with all the window expansion and access to the internet as such?
I also have to upgrade another computer and wonder if win 7 is good enuff for it for the next 5 years or so. I dont want to waste his or my money. Any wisdom will be appreciated.
