    the screen brightness and volume not only work perfect, but the osd actually looks a lot better than windows 8.
    this is a copy/paste screenshot of the osd i get for brightness and volume, nice eh?
    this is the win 7 i game on (you guessed that eh)
    i have a different win 7 one that i use for CAD
    Completely agree - win 7 works like a charm, not a single problem / blue screen / unresponsive computer for over a month of intensive use.
    All drivers work perfectly. Try re-installing the ATK driver which manages the on-screen display. Go get the driver for Win 8 - it works perfectly on Win 7.

    I benchmarked a few games in Win 8 vs Win 7 myself and believe it or not I got anywhere from 10 to 20 more FPS on Win 7 (what a shock, er?). To me, Microsoft continues the tradition of having every OTHER windows being the good one: Win'98 amazing, Win 2000 sux, Win XP amazing, Vista sux, Win 7 amazing, ...

    Good question. Windows 7 runs great, but so does Windows 8.1, I don't know why someone would not want to run Windows 8.1 - early on, maybe, but now with updated Windows 8.1 drivers, why not run Windows 8.1?

    Being at the edge of technology for a long time, I have found there is never any reason to not progress forward, problems happen, solutions happen, progress is made, why wait?

    not in a corporate production environment. it took us 6 monthes just to get back to where we were before when we changed (forced by corporate policy)from windos xp to windows 7.

    but i like to play with the latest new things at home. just to keep up to date and for support.
    windows 8 will be a long way from being adpoted for us.

    It depends on the application, but I found that parallel introduction of new OS's along side stable production processes is the way to go, start early and work through all the bugs over a long period allowing few stoppages along the way.

    Companies that wait till the last minute always came across unexpected stoppages because they don't have the expertise and experience a long ramp up provides.

    That is the cost of waiting. Either way it costs to integrate new tech, but if you can do it over a longer period of time it is less painful, and less costly on a current cost basis.

    Part of that ramp up is me, I don't want to be a hold up in the path, so I make sure I go through all the painful discoveries and solutions well before a client runs across them, so when they do have a problem, I have already found the solution for them.
