I experiment around with Ubuntu as well.

I have to use M$ products like XP and Seven at work and hate every second.

I've been using Windows 8 for two weeks now and I must say, it's not as bad as people say. Aside from Metro/Modern UI, it's pretty much the same as 7. I didn't use the Menu Start anyway, so...

To put it shortly, the new UI has some things going for it and it seems like a good concept in general. The problem is, it lacks customizability. I'd love to set it up to suit me more, but I can barely change anything. So much wasted potential.

I still use XP on all of my machines. I have no plans to downgrade to 7 or 8 any time soon. I'll hang on to XP until the day nothing works with it.
No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

I run Vista Ultimate-64, Win 7-64 and Win 8-64 on three seperate HDD's.

Actually I am sticking to Vista for now since it boots up and shuts down quicker than the other two.
For an old game I have started playing again CoH, on Vista it runs fine.
On Win 7 it refuses to keep the screen in full screen so that I have to keep hitting the 'max' button to get full screen, but it soon reverts back to 'max' again.
On Win 8 it always crashes on a certain level.

I quite liked Win 8-64 that I bought when on offer from MS (for 24.99) in December 2012, and after installing 'Classic Shell' I can run it as per the layout of Win 7. I hate the 'start' screen with the tiles, and the Metro layout.
There are a few more niggles with it, but, I think it is a bit better than Win 7.

But, because of the niggles on those two, I just run Vista which doesn't cause any problems.........and maybe, also to annoy the Vista haters..
