Meh. I’ve been a sysadmin for 14+ years and I have no issue with 8 or 8.1. You just need to spend a bit of time setting up the start page and then it’s actually faster than the old menu.

That's exactly the problem, no one wants to learn. Except the *ix fellas who demand you learn a whole new O/S...

Well... I’ve been one for 24 years and I find a touch screen OS on a desktop to be horribly inefficient. And I have no interest in social media, or logging into Microsoft’s servers, or purchasing things from their store.

I’ve now installed Zorin OS on two client’s laptops and they’re very happy with it. Zorin isn’t going to take over the world, but the point is this.... Zorin has a “Look Changer.” The Look Changer lets you change your desktop to look and act like either Windows 7, XP, Vista, Ubuntu Unity, Mac OS X or GNOME 2. They wish to give the customer what the customer wants, which is the type of business that I choose to give my business. I am losing my loyalty to Microsoft in the same way as I have lost my loyalty to the Feds.
