So, what's better: Windows 8.1 or Windows 10?
I don't know what to do a clean install of.
Windows 10, if you use any other, you'll still have to upgrade in the near future anyways.
Also use http://sourceforge.net/projects/windows-10-lite/files/ when doing a clean install of windows 10. After the install use https://www.safer-networking.org/spybot-anti-beacon/ and you'll be good to go.
Do a clean install of 8.1
Try it out.
Upgrade to 10 for free
Try it out
If you don't like 10, revert back. They give you a month (or week? Can't remember which) to downgrade. Or at least it did when I upgraded for Windows 7 Ultimate. Either way its a win/win
Or just do Windows 7.
As much as I hate to say it, 10. Make sure to use google and find apps that will shut down all the privacy bullshit. I would suggest searching ever few months at least afterwards.
But 10 with SSD is an absolute beast of an OS for gaming or htpc purposes. For anything else, OSX.
Windows 10. If you have a skylake cpu and board then you have native USB 3.0 support, plus the nicest windows operating system on the market that has long term support for the foreseeable future.
both of them spy on you and collect Your information on Windows servers so someone can steal Your Identity in a couple of years when Microsoft get hacked, so just go with the newest spyware. Windows 10

Except you will destroy Your install by reverting back so you need to reinstall everything.
Windows 10 is free now, but they say it's temporary. Just wait to use Windows 10 until it's no longer free and they start paying you to update.
Install pirate Windows 8.1
The 10 spying, heard?
And it's not so cool than 8.1 cuz eats more resources with no new features
If you're not gamer and using PC only for surfing internet/office working etc. install Ubuntu 13.04 LTS
