I'll be honest...
I've gone from Win98SE to XP to Win7. I won't use ME, Vista, or 8.0. ME and Vista are horrible in their own right and I quickly grew tired of the issues. Windows8.X flavours don't suit me very well... I consider myself a bit of an industrial computer user who tries to focus on the utility and use more than cosmetics and 'ease of use' ... because unfortunately making something easy and foolproof for my grandparent's complicates the crap out of trying to do anything out of the ordinary with the machine.
I don't need to go into more detail about that one... as you had to go digging for an MSI file to install your 'trusted' software.
This is a facebook demotivational poster... but it applies everywhere.
