Windows 7. It's on my work desktop, my home desktop, and my home laptop. And that's not going to change.

 

There is a slight possibility of me getting one of the new Lenovo y50's when it finally comes out which will be a Windows 8 machine, but it all depends on the reviews.

I'm currently running Windows 8.0 with Stardock's Start8 and ModernMix. The last two programs are an integral part of the OS, so I feel I should mention them.

 

I ran 8.1 for two months but I did not like it, so now I'm back to 8.0. Perhaps 8.1.1 will be enough to tempt me to "upgrade" again.

 

I really disliked being forced to sign on to Microsoft with 8.1. I also found it conflicted with some of the desktop programs I ran, and it seemed a little flaky (actually flickering) with my video card. And it seemed slightly slower.
