So, my copy of Windows 8 is ruined, huge delay in right click, much less context menus (no NVCPL), Lots of errors, BSODs etc. So I was thinking, I have a Windows 7 DVD and an option to reset my Laptop (Windows 8). I am on Linux Mint 17 (pretty much snappier than windows) (LiveCD). So, my question is - Is Gaming in Windows 8 faster than Windows 7? (please note that I also need multimedia performance too.). So are there any disadvantages of Windows 8? I hate it when I quickly take the mouse to the left bottom corner, but then I fine no Start button. I cant access System Restore because it just says "no such interface supported". So should I go for Windows 7 or do a Reset?
