I'm quite happy with Vista. It's my daily computer's primary operating system. It works. Start up time has slowed down a little since I installed more software on my recent fresh installation of Ultimate, and really didn't add any services that I can see as being resource hogs. But it still works fast enough that I don't feel fidgety and frustrated waiting for it. But I've got to put W8 through its paces with some tests that are meaningful for me and see if it's a noticeable improvement.

That Metro UI drives me crazy. Tried to remove it but seems that the most recent Windows 8 versions have patched it.
I was kinda expecting this 8 to be a fail. Take a look at this:
Windows 98 SE -> Good
Windows 2000 -> Bad but not so much
Windows XP -> Good
Windows Vista -> Bad
Windows 7 -> Good
Windows 8 -> Bad
Windows 9 -> Good??? (Who wanna bet? :P)

No need to resurrect an old post...or continue posting in one. Anyway, it's been beaten to death, but Windows 8 isn't bad at all...especially not when you actually use it. I have been running it on my Ultrabook for well over 2 months now, and I can't tell you the last time I saw the Start screen or anything Metro related. Instead of following the sheeple and bashing Windows 8...get to know it, and catch up on the available products (even free ones) that do what you want.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers
 
 

Hi there
"De-Uglification" of desktops on ANY OS can be done with a certain amount of customisation.

Actually one of the NICEST desktop backgrounds that I liked was the "Unofficial - never released" Luna Black scheme on XP.

I got this to work on Windows 2003 server (I found windows 2003 server running as a desktop with a little bit of fiddling to get a server more appropriate to run as a desktop far better and more robust than XP).

I'll admit though I don't miss Aero one bit.

Screenshot enc.

Cheers
jimbo

Install Windows 7 Start Menu for Windows 8 freeware which grafts on the actual Win7 Start Menu, toggles off Metro so it doesn't load into RAM and therefore makes 8 seem a bit faster.

You can always toggle back to Metro, but if you don't and decide to abandon the 8 apps you'll need to adjust your Default Programs in Control Panel, and/or uninstall them from Metro screen.

Some programs look ugly in the taskbar.
I'm enjoying Windows 7 and I really like how the taskbar functions (I use it as a application launcher pretty much, as an alternative to using icons on my desktop)... except with some software. For example, I have a game I play often. I pinned the updater to the game on the taskbar, since it's...
