Is Windows 8.1 improved enough for Windows 7 users to upgrade?
sspade 7 weeks ago
Sometimes an upgrade isn’t necessarily an improvement, as some people might argue was demonstrated by the move from Windows 7 to Windows 8. I held off Windows 8 so far, mainly because of the UI, and am still plugging along on good ole Windows 7. Is Windows 8.1 an upgrade with enough improvements to make it worth the time and expense for Windows 7 users to upgrade?
