If you have a good firewall, WinXP will work very well 80 to 90% of the common things to do as I do in the office. Of course, Vista is pretty bad compared to XP but Win 8/8.1 are atrocious. For example, there's no easy way permanently disable the Touch Keyboard on the taskbar. There's no simple way to disable the transparency of the taskbar. That's only talking about the taskbar.

With a good "Start Menu" replacement, Win 8.1 works just fine for me. Metro is irrelevant; I never see it. Win 8.1 looks much like Win 7 did now.

In fact, I had no idea Win 8/8.1 even had a "Touch Keyboard", much less that it was a problem. Metro doesn't exist for me unless I were to deliberately go into it.

I just don't understand the intensity and fury of the complaints about something so easily fixed for free.
