Well I used a whole lot over the years.
Windows 7 - Best for me by a fair bit since 2000
Windows 2000 - Stable and just got on with it.

For me there will need to be a clear desktop version without the Metro start stuff; i voted Good except for.... based on my thoughts of using my main computer day in day out. Maybe it would work and feel better that i currently think it would. But it's early days.
