Personally, the simple the better. The interface is horrible imo. I have only recently been using Windows 7 and it got some getting used to.
Previously, I loved XP...and didn't want anything else. But, I'm gaming a lot on pc and most high end games requiere Windows 7 OS. Again, it's a
personal preference and I'm very picky about my experience.
I guess, since I've come from using a z80 processor back in the 80's where I had to use actual machine code to write programs, 6502 processor, then
moved onto a 8086 machine, then up to the 286, 386, 486 and so on architecture, then windows 3.11, 95, 98, NT, 2000, various Server installs cut back
to a desktop environment, XP, vista (fleeting), 7 and now 8, the progression and learning curve has become less and less an encumbrance to me.
However, 8 is actually simpler than 7.
-- I lie a little bit. The one thing I had to do that I couldn't do out of the box, was Media Centre. Luckily I got in when they still offered a free
install key. But as I've imaged the installed os I can revert to this if I need to reinstall.
Maybe it is just familiarity... I was dead set against this 'mobile orientated atrocity' when I first saw it. Now I can't imagine not having the
start screen as it is.
-- OP !
Mustard, there's always some condiment getting in the way of things. If this keyboard did not have a billion little pressure pads under
the keys, I'd be in there scraping out years worth of bread crumbs, cookie dust and stout. as it does contain a jigsaw puzzle, I have to live with it
