I think Windows 8.1 will be the next MS OS I jump to. It feels like Microsoft listened to their customers for this upcoming release.

Geez for a failed OS, Windows 8 is doing better then all the mac os's and other combined :)
8.1 is rather good Dave, its much better to navigate with the start button back, right clicking it gives you a lot of options so its pretty easy to find your way.
I may try it again,......
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
XP still has 33% market share? Wow! As a long time windows user that tends to stay on top of the latest OS, I'm surprised it's still that high. I haven't owned an XP-PC in years!
I've been very happy with win8 since the launch ...
Heh, I still have an old XP-based laptop that I have to use for my ancient laser printer (which still runs like a champ). Grandpa's print center.
Having installed and used Windows 8 on a fair amount of computers with keyboards and non-touch monitors, several of which are dual-boots with Windows 7, I must say that I prefer the former to the latter ; it comes across as quicker and smoother. This, of course, after installing Classic Shell and disabling the so-called Lock Screen, so that the OS boots directly to one's log-in screen ; a Windows 8 installation which boots to the so-called «Modern» interface is an abomination on anything but a tablet. What's worrying me is whether I'm going to be able to continue with these, for me, essential customisations after updating to Windows 8.1 ; if not, I'll have to stick with the earlier version....
For my personal use, however, I prefer a GNU/Linux distro to anything I've seen coming from Microsoft....
