here is a read on 8.1.
in short win7 is a PC os.
win 8 is a touch/cloud os with pc support.
that article only touches on some issues as well there is many more. coming from XP it goes without saying win7 will be a more freindly experience for you, also dont worry about it been "old", win 7 isnt about to go EOL it has several years left, win 8 also only has 7% market share so you wont be left out on win 7, that has the biggest windows market share, and XP is 2nd behind it.
Its like what website dev's started doing, redoing their websites to be touch friendly claiming pc users arent compromised when they are, it is impossible to have a good UI good for both, one has to have consequences, and sadly touch usually gets favoured due to thats where the growth is. Most popular websites were better 2 years ago then they were now before they started becoming "touch friendly"..
