Are there any benefits to using Windows 8 with Windows Phone 8?

I just purchased a Nokia Lumia 820 phone with Windows Phone 8 and my main computer is running Windows 7. I already own a Windows 8 license but I downgraded to Windows 7 after having some issues with Windows 8.

I am willing to give Windows 8 another try if there are any benefits in using Windows 8 along with Windows Phone 8, does anyone know any?

I don’t have the phone with me, it will be shipped during this week, next week on the latest.

Thank you in advance.

    well Windows 8 offers two PC sync solutions, the Windows Phone (Metro) application and the Windows Phone (desktop) application, these two sync solutions offer different features sets.

    for instance if you want to sync podcast you use Windows Phone (desktop) application for doc you use Windows Phone (Metro) application.
