Depends on the machine -
On my laptop which has a small screen (1366x768, although not touch) I find Windows 8 a much better experience. I guess this is because of the short travelling distance for my thumb between the touch pad and Windows key/rest of the keyboard and because the start menu used to take 1/3 of the screen anyway, as well as using pretty much all apps full screen even when running Windows 7 on the same machine.
Whilst on the big screen (27" 1440P) desktop, Windows 7 just edges it, but that is because it just doesn't make as much sense running full screen apps. I expect Microsoft will fix this over the next few versions of Windows.
I can totally understand the focus for Windows 8, because most normal users are laptop users with screens around 1366x768 resolution.
After that Vista > 2000 > XP > NT4.0 > 98SE > 98 > 95OSR2 > 95 > 3.11 > 3.1 > ME - that's pretty much the only versions I have used in any real heavy capacity.
