I think this poll is skewed by the forum's population: The people here have made peace with Windows 8 and are trying to make the best of it.
Windows 8 is the most stable and reliable OS I've ever used (my last was XP). On the other hand, the metro side of the OS is to me completely wrong for a PC with a keyboard. I use Classic Shell and stay completely within the old desktop environment and I am happy.
On the other hand, less geeky users must just freak out when they are torn away from their old desktop and jammed into the metro environment. The hate for Win 8 is completely understandable. We here have to understand that the vast majority of users don't care one hoot about the nuances of the metro UI and how it may portend the future, they only want to slog through their daily grind without drama.
