Worth Having Windows 8 As Main Os? 2012-05-08 17:46:41 Reply

I was thinking of upgrading from windows 7 to Windows 8. Lately Windows 7 has been giving me all kinds of trouble like hanging on shut down, programs not working and other serious problems that concern me. I was thinking it was time to change to a better Operating System. I'm between trying the new consumer preview of windows 8 and giving it a go or just installing windows xp 64 bit edition once more. Help me choose newgrounds?

Get Ubuntu.

You can try it out before you install it, and it won't cost a thing.

Eh, Windows 8 isn't even out yet (as far as I know). I'd wait a little while to buy that and for now, either stick with Win7 or load Windows XP.

Use Ubuntu, It is the best OS. The only problem is you cannot run .exe's unless you use WINE. This means no games.
