Haha, yes. I've gotten that reaction before. I've used Vista for the last 5 years and even though I've experienced problems before, and still do, it is the OS that I'm most used to. And back in the days when people said that Vista as a glitchy piece of of sh*t, I experienced that and endured since it was already installed on my PC and I was too lazy to reinstall to XP. And after Service Pack 2 came out, the only problems I have had are minor interface things and program compatibility (Solidworks is being phased out of Vista after 2014).
I have not gotten used to how much has changed in Widows 8, Start menu and many of the basic components of Windows itself has been chucked out the window, heck I had to Google how to turn off a computer in Widows 8. I see a big problem right there. If and when Microsoft brings back the old GUI of Windows, that's the moment I'll start to like Win 8 some more.
