Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

But the Server 2012 trial? Much more friendly and usable.

Only the best for Microsoft's corporate clients. The rest of us, apparently, can go fly a kite.

It's not like that. Corporations have more people than servers, so they have more windows clients (xp, 7) than servers (2003, 2008)
e.g. my company has roughly 10x more clients.
