    Hello, I have just ordered a rMBP 15" 2014 model. I heard that Windows 8 and 8.1 are not stable. Is it true? Is Windows 8.1 fully compatible with rMBP 15" 2014 model? Is it better to get Windows 7? I cannot find Windows 7 in stores anymore.

    Windows 8.1 is fine and better for use on Retina display models due to its support for HiDPI.

    Thanks. How about compatibility issue with older software? The one I use often is Borland C++ 6.0 Professional.
