Am I the only one who almost choked when reading that?

If I was going to "personalize" my mobile computing, it would not look/act like Windows 8, that's for sure!

I barely noticed Windows 7.1 was released today. It's so last month.

I still think Windows 2003 is the best version of Windows ever, in terms of speed/stability/functionality. And I use it to this day - a modified version that is converted to a desktop workstation.

I was highly anticipating Ubuntu 13.10, which I am downloading now...instead of installing Classic Shell on top of Winblows 8 I am gonna install Mate on Ubuntu.

Under the hood anything before vista is pretty much junk. Incomplete threading model. It might have looked nice but a very amateur OS.
