I don't own any copies of Windows 8/8.1 but I have played around with it on friends' computers. Looks similar to Windows 7, which I use, except for more ribbons and the start screen. Can't get used to the latter if it's not a touch screen, though. Is there a way to turn this off?

Falcon i do not have a touch screen but i found this :

Hope it helps !

The more i play with W 8.1 i love it & find challenging ! But i'm sure it will be obsolute in no time !!

The 8.1 is free upgrade now don't know if they will charge for it later !
