8.1 is faster, uses less memory, has better security, and has more backup and recovery options.

People have trouble with the new Tiled interface. But if you don't like it, install a small free program called Classic Shell to bring back the normal Windows 7 style desktop and start menu.

People like to complain without actually trying to resolve the issue.

While that is all true in the minds of the MS marketing department none of that has been demonstrated in the real world.

I've seen numerous benchmarks that show Win8 to be faster than Win7. Granted it's not a lot, 3%-10% depending on the benchmark.
