I have this Linux system on my PC which has become a bit boring (no, it's not crashed or anything... I just got a bit bored), so I decided to replace it with Windows 7 (some friends told me to not even try Windows 8 because it has an advanced interface nobody was able to figure out yet).

Win 8 jokes are not funny. That OS is so bad it's tragic! It's like making fun of a mentally challenged kid. It's just something you do not do. I am 100% serious about this (it is not a joke). -- I speak for myself, not my employer.
I actually bought the Win8 upgrade since it's currently $39 for Pro and I may have to support some customers that may be running it. I installed it on my laptop. I thoroughly despise it so far. The only redeeming quality is the app Pinball FX2. It's fun.
Regardless I may wipe it out and install some form of Debian based distro. Win7 worked fine although a bit slow on the laptop. Win8 - a horrid experience all around. -- There are 10 types of people that understand binary numbers. Those that do - and those that do not...
