Well, Vista wasn't so bad neither. Aero and the indexing service were drags on resources, but once you disabled these it was a pretty decent OS. Same with W8. What we don't like, we fix it by installing Classic Start or Start8 among other things. Others learned how to configure the Start Screen in a more useful way. If I have to ues W8, you can make sure I''ll will dismantle it down to the chassi and rebuild it to my liking.
