Get windows 7.

8 is absolute garbage. so many unnecessary screens that you have to navigate through.

its always best to wait.

vista was total ****, then 7 came out and it was pretty much worse.
it'll improve.

also; i really hope you aren't planning on buying an OS

Problem: I'm 16, don't have a job, live at home, and my mom insists for me to buy the OS

Actually, my friend, who's helping me build, has a copy of windows 8 he's willing to share.

im not even sure sharing an OS is allowed/possible.
i recently built my computer on a torrented copy of w7 with absolutely no issues whatsoever.
there's really no risk in it.
"windows is not genuine" is the worst possible scenario in which case you simply re-do the "crack"

I think the stupidest part of this question is that you're asking if it should be Windows 7 or 8. 8 is pretty damn bad. I survive with it, but I can't stand it.

Windows 8 is the worst OS I've ever used. Get 7, you won't regret it

I probably will go with 7. It costs less, anyway.

As a person that deals with this kinda stuff a lot. I'm currently using a 8.1. it works great. and fixes a lot of problems that people had with 8. Id suggest just do your research.

SteamOS will be absolutely free, as is the majority of Linux distros.

If you're interested in other operating systems - I would suggest looking into Ubuntu ( www.ubuntu.com/ ) as it very user friendly and quite easy to install. Most oridnary software you find paid on Windows you will find a completely free and well functioning similar program on Linux distros (office, photoshop etc).

Performance ratings are overall better than Windows and Mac except for graphics. That's why steamOS is so welcomed by many - as they will bring a new wave of improved drivers for graphic cards and will attract many game devs to this platform.
