Windows 8 has plenty of things to offer over Windows 7. It'll give you complete feel of next generation OS and tablet like experience. Though, it lacks somewhere to Windows 7 like start button but third party tools like classic shell would able to restore it back.

Other than this, Windows 8 has storage spaces, file history, great apps gallery etc. To make your PC a safer place to do stuff.

Absolutely, Windows 8 will boot faster (less than 8 seconds) and perform copy/move/delete operation in super fast way. It also has improved file copying operation window where you could perform multiple copy/move operation while holding functionality to pause, cancel or abort the operation at mid, unlike its predecessor.
