I'm a Linux "fanboy", but never had anything other than Windows as desktop. For a very simple reason: on Linux, whenever I open more than 2 windows (of any sort), I feel handicapped, gasping for air. On Windows XP, I can easily have 30 windows open, and manage them successfully. With XP, I just can do more. XP/W2k (classic look) treats screen real estate as a precious resource. Every last tiny display space is used to convey useful information. On Linux, half a inch between menu items is OK. Then came Vista. The Linuxification of the UI ! I never used Vista, Seven, or Win8 (and probably never will, for more than 10mn that is). XP/W2k UI goes beyond my wildest dreams, and although there is a ton of things to fix in XP, really, really, the UI needed no updating at all ! I simply can't think of a suggestion to make to make the UI better (with all the available customization). Hey, I'm not against change ! Really, if Ms was to come up with a useful evolution, I would be the first to sign up ! Just show me an improvement ! I see blatant, ugly, in you face regression in usability. Faster/lighter/safer/smarter underlying OS doesn't make up for it. It's that bad.

No matter how you go about it, the most pleasure I get from money is when I give it up. Spending it on loved ones is the most rewarding and long lasting pleasure I can ever get from it. Darn!
