Old computer busted, new one got, but have I stuffed myself yet again?

Yep the missus at last allowed me to get a new computer so was feeling pretty chuffed, until I saw that Windows 8 is in the pipeline.: So do you techie guys reckon my latest acquisition will be redundant shortly? Shan't be able to afford another for yonks on my measley pension! PS Nevvie' Apple was beyond budget, sorry mate. :

Don't worry about it. Win 7 will serve you well for many many years. Win 8 is not going to bring you a large number of new features, health or happiness.

100 is right, no major changes, I think windows 8 it's Microsoft getting ready to have a crack at the tablet market. Windows 7 will be about for a while

I think that (and hope too) Windows 7 will be around as long as XP was. It's a good operating system and deserves to be around for quite a while.

As idiot says, W8 is more for the tablet.

Download the beta version of Windows 8 if you fancy a look at it... I wouldn't bother, it looks kind of rubbish on a laptop to be honest

Those tablet 'tiles' just won't work on a pc.
