I will wait until the next version of Windows 9 or 10 is released. By that
time all bugs experienced in Win 8 should have been resolved.

Been using Windows 8 for over a year. I'm hesitant to go to Windows 8.1. I
suppose if it is already loaded, that might be OK.
I've heard too many people, however, who have tried to update their systems
from Windows 8 to 8.1 only to find that they had to install all their
software all over again.
I cannot afford that kind of disaster.
As far as Windows 8 is concerned, unless you are a Start Menu junkie, I have
seen little difference. In fact, there seem to be more truly functional
keyboard commands.
If you operate from your desktop mostly (and I do), then the transition from
XP shouldn't be a big deal. Do check around for podcasts on the subject.
There is a particularly good one from, I think, Vision Australia, but I'm
going from memory, and I listened to it about a year ago.

Hi, listers:
I use Jaws 15 and plan to ditch Windows xp soon. How well does Jaws 15 work
with Windows 8.1? I'm wondering about how much of a learning curve there is
with version 15 and Windows 8.1. Should I move up to Windows 8.1 or go
instead with Windows 7? I need and appreciate your input. Thanks.
