Windows 7 professional or windows 8.1 or windows 8.1 professional

Hi all,

Can you help me with choosing the best OS among above to install visual studio 2012/2010 ?
I want to know if any specific features of visual studio will be limited by the underlying OS that it is installed on?

I am aware that Remote Desktop option and joining a domain is available only for professional.

Thanks.

Forget W8, use W7 then go for W10 when it becomes available.
W8 is not really designed for web developers et al

Hi Jyozeal ,

Keep in mind two additional things.

Windows 8 is not the supported OS for visual studio 2010.

Windows 7 :  Mainstream Support End Date: 01/13/15 and Extended Support end date: 01/14/2014

The disadvantage I've found with .NET4.5 is not all computers have it, and therefore it's another install for the client.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
