Actually, how to downgrade from 8 to 7 would be a more useful article for people. Windows 8 on a desktop or laptop is horrendous.
May want a disclaimer that this is not recommended. There are plenty of other more entertaining ways to break windows on a desktop.

First up why would you? Wow and now the Start button is back that helps you keep Metro out of your way so you can enjoy your Win2k looking desktop. What crap!
Would only recommend up to Windows 7 Ultimate edition, upgrading to Windows 8X is like upgrading from a Rolls Royce to a Robin Reliant.
I am working on upgrading my Windows 8 computer to eComStation 2.0. :) I am frustrated with Windows 8. I read Windows 8.1 is only a little different than the 8.0.

Windows 8 is an unbelievable pile of crap and whoever allowed it to be released on an unsuspecting public should be fired. I would gladly go back to Win7 in a heartbeat to escape the debacle of Win8 or 8.1.
DON'T DO IT! Windows 8.1 is somehow worse than Windows 8. After first installing 8, I kind of like it. But then I realized how hard it is to do anything. I upgraded to 8.1 thinking it would make it better, and boy was I wrong. Sure, the start button is back, but all it does is bring you to the tile window. That is what the windows button on the keyboard does... I installed an aftermarket program that gives you the classic start button. Finally, 8.1 has decided to screw with my wifi as well. I have to do a restart any time I shut down or go into sleep mode, because for some reason it disables my wifi every time. Restarting is the only way to get it to come back. And NO ONE has been able to fix it.

Moving from Windows 7 to Windows 8 is a DOWNGRADE. You're downgrading from a computer to a cell phone.
Don't do it ! You going to be so sorry ! We are talking for the failure of the millennia
I have a Win7 Tablet touchscreen the size of an iPad. Wouldn't I be better off with 8.1 for its touchscreen? If upgrading why not shoot an image of your Win7 with Macrium and then restore it if you wanted to go back to Win7?
