I tried both last week due to PC upgrades (new gtx780, memmory upgrades and new SSDs).

I started with win8.1. The latest OS is much lighter, faster but the main issue I found is that not all sim addons (SW/HW) are working correct.

So three days later I went back to win7. The first thing I noticed is that win8.1 was stutter free in comparison to win7 and the fps was much better (more than 10fps difference!).

So overall in win8.1 I was getting better performance but less addons.

I guess now i have to choose if I will re-install win8.1 or wait and see if version 2.3 will make the experience in win7 better.
