After some hesitation I installed Windows 8.1 on my main laptop. I am familiar with the new interface and so there were no surprises in that regard. However, I was quite fond of Windows 7 and it had never failed me.
Why then? Well, there were a few reasons but the main reason is that I wanted to move from Virtual Box to Hyper-V. So far, my upgrade experience has been very, very good. I was amazed at how well the laptop configurations migrated! Naturally, there are a few potential of which you should be aware. Here are a few of pointers for you who are considering the upgrade path.
Note, I am no expert on the different upgrade paths. There may be better (and worse) paths. My installation set upgraded my Windows 7 all the way to Windows 8.1.
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\mmc.exe /32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\SQLServerManager11.msc
All in all I am very pleased with the new OS. I have had a solid weak of intensive consulting with the “new” laptop and it has not failed me!
