I need to purchase new computers for the company.  I need to decide if I am going to purchase Windows 8 or Windows 7.  Windows 8 is only a few months old.  Do I go with the latest or the one with years of patches.

Hi,

I'm running Windows 8 for two months, it worked in our 2008R2 Domain without any problems until now.

Windows 8 is based on Windows 7 and Server 2011 on Server 2008R2, so you don't have to expect problems.
