Windows 8 vs. Windows 7

Windows 8 so far has proven that it starts up and shuts down much faster than Windows 7.  Windows 7 is better at 3D graphics performance but falls behind Windows  8 in multimedia performance.  When it comes to browser performance, Windows 8 blows away Windows 7 in all categories.  It works faster than Windows 7 with Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.  When it comes to gaming, both operating systems test the same.  Overall, I would say that Windows 8 looks poised to beat Windows 7 in overall performance.  Once you wrap your head around the no start button on Windows 8 it is an awesome operating system!
