The W8 machine was a loaner? Whew! You just had to deal with it for a short time then.
With regular use you could have found out what Windows 8 is REALLY like.
And truly have come to hate it....

I finally upgraded from Win XP to 7 last year when I found out SQL Server 2012 doesn't run on XP. It isn't my base machine, that is a 27" iMac i7 running Parallels VM, so I wasn't too concerned about security issues. Best of all worlds: stable Unix OS, nice GUI, and I can run Windows for 2-3 programs and Scientific Linux for study.
I told my dad quite plainly "DO NOT upgrade to Windows 8!" I'm very thankful that he has not.
Now I just need to find a copy of Win98 so I can create a VM for playing Outlaws and Duke Nuke'm and Diablo 2. I'm sure I have one buried somewhere, I just haven't excavated that far yet.
