It certainly has to be better than Vista!
Of course, I enjoy playing older computer games on my PC(such as Commodore 64 emulated games), and ones such as Doom, Planescape Torment, Ultima VII, etc. Since some of the games are so old, I have to use DOSBox to play them. From what I have heard, it will pretty much be impossible to play games like that on Windows 8(at least XP has a Compatibility option so you can play games in Win 95/98 emulation).
And I just realized that this thread is in the "Mobile Phones" sub-forum. I'm going to move it to a more appropriate one.
If Window 7 is working fine for you, no, I don't think so .
