    I got the student version and upgraded to Win 10, which has it quirks but is decent. (review of Win 10 upgrade)

    Windows 7, great. Windows 8, meh. Windows 8.1, pretty good. Seriously, it's like 7 but internally better. The only lackluster thing is just a UI annoyance with the start screen. But it's nothing to give up the whole OS over. Looking forward to Windows 10 though.

    from completed build Pentium, the eternal

    Got it from Dreamspark back when I was in college, works fine but I guess I still prefer Windows 7. At least it's upgradeable to Windows 10 for free.

    Overall very pleasing once I got the 8.1 update. Easy to customize to suite your needs and good memory management.

    Wait for 10, or go back to 7 and or XP.

    Windows 8.1 Pro was a good OS, performed well, operates quickly and efficiently, but it's UI was lacking and the "start button" that was brought back was but a shadow of it's former self, but the OS was still a good one, especially after installing Classic Shell and skipping the "metro" start menu altogether.
