Windows 8 , 8.1 is the ultimate OS. It makes everyone happy in one fashion or another.
Some like the Start screen over Start button. Even appreciating learning new ways to customize it.
Some installed a 3rd party Start button alternative and accept it. That makes some happy.
Some installed a 3rd party Start button alternative and even though they have no problem navigating their OS now but, they still love complaining and running MS down. In the end, even the biggest haters love 8 & 8.1
I know who I would vote for title as "Biggest 8 Lover by Hate proxy" A member who has posted more negative news links since I joined in Dec 12 about 8, MS losing sales and the demise of MS.
