The problem with Windows 8 is that there's virtually no reason why you would want to upgrade from 7. The new UI is more of an annoyance than anything else and that's the only real difference. You could justify going from XP to 7 (let's just skip Vista because of the horrible launch it had) but not from 7 to 8.

Just my experience but Windows 8 runs better on my laptop than the windows 7 that came with it.

Don't know what you mean by "runs better." CIFS/SMB performance should be practically the exact same.

CIFS and SMB are network transport protocols. It stands to reason that they would perform the same since the bottleneck is usually either disk I/O or the network in between the systems. The only time OS becomes an issue is when you're working with non-native support, like using SMB in Linux or OS X.

I'm guessing he's talking about applications loading and there's a reason for it - much like other tablet/smartphone OS', Windows 8 apps don't shut down. They continue running in the background in a low-CPU state. So the next time you open Word, it opens almost instantly.
