aww.. i really like Windows 8, and Office 2013...

guess i'm the only one, come on guys just embrace change :D

I love change. I loved all the changes through every version of windows and mac. I adapt easily to new environment. I even adapted fairly easily to the AS/400 in school. I seamlessly made sense of every new phone and mobile device I've ever used because they all had an easy to learn single design behind them. Windows 8 is the most frustrating pile of crap I've ever used. I've said it before.. but Windows ME was far superior because for all of it's instability it still had a single easy to use interface and the stability could largely be fixed by disabling System Restore.

Change is good when it's natural and flows. The change in windows 8 is forced and in many ways demented.

It's seldom enough that this happens, but on the rare occasions when we actually share on opinion, I guess it's worth to give you some extra props and a reply.

Thumbs up to you! (Y)

So?

I think there needs to be an option "Windows 8 : Only because i'm in the computer repair business other wise I would be running windows 7"

VM, dual/multi boot, secondary machine, ...

Plenty of ways to get used to 8 and not having to deal with it all the time. :)

I am not in that business, and I would gladly take 8 over 7 any day of the year.

Windows 8 Pro x64

Honestly, I don't get the hate. I don't see any "missing features or functionality" (Aero Glass aside). I use the desktop interface exclusively; the only time I use the ModernUI is for the weather app I got. The new Start Screen can do everything the old Start menu did and them some.

I used Windows 8 for a month straight after release. Got very irritated and went back to Windows 7. After seeing some reviews of Start8 (and other similar programs), I figured I would give 8 yet another chance. It is definitely more usable now, but I am still not completely happy with it. Too lazy to reformat again right now, but I already prepared an updated Windows 7 ISO for when I may need it. The only reason I use Windows now that I am no longer in school is for gaming.

On my laptop (from which I am typing this now), I am using Arch Linux. It will remain on here for the foreseeable future because I love it and it loves me. We are not ashamed of our love. I will climb the mountain tops and announce it! Sometimes when we get in an argument, I cheat on it with Gentoo. Or if I am just bored. You know how men are, right? At the end of the day though, true love shall overcome all odds.

Windows 8 x64 with Media Center. It "just works", even with my ancient ATI 4600 series video card. Darn ATI/AMD for not working on new drivers for it. Don't wanna buy another video card yet!

Windows 8. It does everything 7 does and more. Faster and more streamlined overall as well. No reason to stick with 7 unless you hate things that you don't understand.

It will probably be Windows 7.

I've got Windows 8, just not tried it yet. Unlike XP which was ageing by the time Windows 7 came out. I don't see the need for Windows 8, other than to experience Metro.

Also i will probably put Ubuntu on my ageing laptop.

Windows 7. hopefully Valve will make gaming worth using linux this next year, so i can jump off the downward spiral that is microsoft and windows.

Good luck with that lol

I could even say Windows 8 was my main OS in 2012. It is sufficient to say that Windows 8 will be my main OS in 2013. I have no qualms with Windows 8. I would like to add though that I'm working diligently this time around in making Ubuntu work for me. Gaming is a real problem for me.

Windows 8 at the moment, but I don't really use my desktop these days. I'm planning on going back to Windows 7. Windows 8 makes no sense if you don't have a touch screen, it's just plain stupid imo.

8 with Decor8, just to make the Metro start screen a little more.. palatable.

The speed improvements alone are enough for me to justify the upgrade. Then again, I didn't pay a cent for Windows 8 (hooray, MSDNAA!)
