in an ideal world, all those games and applications you want to run would work on something more stable like Linux.
But Unfortunately because they don't, so I couldn't honestly recommend anything else for the typical PC user.
"Prepare yourself for the most reliable, secure and responsive Windows yet."
admittedly that's true it is the most reliable WINDOWS yet. Out of the box though, you would be very wise to add a few security features yourself.
I suggest that when you use windows you MUST have a virus scanner, AVG is a good low cost option as they have an adequate free edition. Like it's competitors (Viruses scanners are pretty much all the same) it can detect hostile code in any programs you might download or emails you receive for example.
You can stick with windows firewall because FINALLY, they have added a firewall, but you may want to add a 3rd party one for increased security, I would suggest getting hold of a 3rd party software based firewall (to run along with your hardware based firewall you should have already) as that will decrease your vulnerability to hackers by making your installation non-typical. Most hackers are script kiddies who will learn how to break standard configurations only.
Worth checking out are Kerio and Zone Alarm (Zone alarm has a free edition).
Call me paranoid, but I've been attacked on occasion, it only takes a bad looser to find out your IP address.Read more ›
