Episode 1176 (2:00:37)

Alan from Simi Valley, CA

Alan is trying to decide whether to get Windows 7 or Windows 8.1. Leo says that Microsoft dropped the ball with Windows 8.1 because it's confusing. There are two versions of programs on it, one for the tablet and one for the desktop part. Leo advises getting Windows 7, because Windows 10 will be a free upgrade this summer. That way he can just leapfrog over 8.1 to Windows 10. Leo's been using Windows 10 and likes it. It solves a great deal of problems.
