Microsoft Windows 8.1 Reviewed on October 17, 2013 Check prices
Product overview
Microsoft Windows 8.1
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.1 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.0 stars out of 40 reviews

The Bottom Line: If you're a dedicated Windows 8 hater, the update to Windows 8.1 isn't going to change your mind. For everyone else, this collection of tweaks, fixes, and new features is useful, but everything here should have shipped in the original version last year. Read review

Microsoft Windows 8 Pro (Upgrade)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.0 stars out of 292 reviews

The Bottom Line: Microsoft makes an aggressive, forward-thinking, and bold statement for the future of PCs with Windows 8, and vast security and speed improvements more than justify the $40 upgrade price. Read review

Product overview
Microsoft Windows 7 (Ultimate)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.5 stars Spectacular
      Overall score: 9.0 (4.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 50 reviews

The Bottom Line: Windows 7 is more than what Vista should have been, it's where Microsoft needed to go. How much damage Vista did and whether Windows 7 is enough for people to finally abandon Windows XP are questions that nobody has the answers to right now. Read review

Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition Reviewed on June 28, 2000 Check prices
Product overview
Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.0 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.0 stars out of 106 reviews

The Bottom Line: Millennium is a great face-lift for Windows 98, but it's not a necessary upgrade. If you have technical difficulties or work with pictures or music, try the new OS. But if you're happy with Windows 98, stick with it. Read review

  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 2432 reviews

The Bottom Line: XP is a worthwhile upgrade from 95/98 or Windows 2000. Unless you need corporate administration tools, XP Home Edition should suffice for most--even for small businesses. Read review
