I prefer Windows 7, because of it's simplicity and my experience with it.

If primary support is through online sources, Windows 7, due to higher percentage of users.

You are forgetting windows 8.1

When you get windows 8, you can upgrade for windows 8.1 for free, and it is much better. The modern apps are much more desktop-like, and it is closer to windows 7.

You can websearch for the process and hope you don't end up with KB 2919355 problem. I am not a Win8/8.1 user so those users can assist you.

Simply search "windows 8.1 download" and go to the microsoft website. Follow the instructions and you're done!

I found it through the microsoft store through the metro interface tbh, was just an easy install and wait for it to download and install. It really is just windows 7 with tweaks to make it a bit better- along with a whole new interface option. It is very easy to completely ignore the metro interface though. (I also think the inactivity screen is pretty cool tbh)
