Hi, wondering if anyone has downloaded windows 8.1 yet and what your experience has been. I'm on the fence still.

I am still using Vista, my hard drive went bad last spring and the tech asked me If I wanted Windows 7 put on and I said no I would go with Vista. Then I asked him about Windows 8 and he said there was no way he would use it and does not suggest anyone else use it either......I went and checked out what people were saying about 8.1 and the views haven't changed, on one likes it and many are still waiting with XP in hopes that Windows 8 will just go

It is getting now so it is not funny. Vista will be supported until 2017 I hope there is something out before then.....and XP is no longer being supported.....But I think the poor computer sales will maybe push a new OS out sooner rather than later. I hope so anyway.....I really wanted to get a new computer too but it is hard when the old one keeps going....

But I suppose there are some people that are getting along with Windows 8.1 but you sure don't hear much good about it....
