Should I upgrade to Windows 7 or Windows 8?

Episode 988 (1:38:24)

Kiki from Portland, OR

Kiki is a secretary for an organization, and needs to get a separate computer to manage it. She's using XP now, and she can get a good deal on a Windows 7 Dell machine. She's leery of Windows 8. She's wondering if she should just get the Windows 7 machine, or wait and go with Windows 8. Leo says that Windows 8.1 will be better in the fall, but there's no need to wait. Leo's office uses Windows 7. One thing to check out though is Microsoft Office 365. It's a subscription model with a low monthly cost that she can put on multiple machines. It's far more affordable than buying Office in a suite.
