Then don't update, I don't know what else you want people to say.
Then Windows 9 will come, slightly polish Windows 8 like 7 did with Vista, and people will go nuts over it, proving how fickle you all really are.
Vista was bloated and slow... but it was not fundamentally switching to a interface paradigm that was hostile to power users. They are setting a course for Win 9 to be worse in that regard... not better.
