      Which version of Windows OS do you prefer? Windows 8.1 or Windows 10?

      For me personally, I like both, given the option I'd probably go with Windows 8.1 over Windows 10 but saying that, I like Windows 10 a lot. My new laptop hasn't had nay issues with any drivers after updating them all to the latest version and I gotta say, I'm really pleased with my laptop and how smooth it's running :)

      I've actually had a few issues with my Surface Pro 4 but again, after updates, they haven't come back *knocks on wood*. :)

      I'm happy with Win 10.

      When I bought this laptop it had Win 8.1 on it which took me a bit to get used to but once I did I liked it. Then it did the upgrade to Win 10. And honestly I see no difference exept when you go to log off instead of waving the mouse in the top rigth corner you just click onthe window icon in the corner *just like the older versions*

      I prefer Windows XP to run on slower systems, however Windows 8 is the best one to have latest software on the computer. In these days Windows 8 is preferred to have any new software or else you are unable to utilize new things in life.

      I rather use windows 7, but I would use windows 10 if given no other option.
