I thought Windows 7 was utterly horrible and nailed the coffin
Are you kidding?
Win 6 is the most solid version I've ever seen and I've been using it and programming for Windows since Win 2.x came out, so I've a bit of history there! Win 7 and Vista were the first versions where the plug-n-play hardware really works.
Only problem I had with Win 7 or Vista is I went fully 64-bit on 2 machines and had to support 32-bit drivers for my other machines connecting to hardware resources on my machine, but it wasn't as painful as it used to be to make it work.
Win 8 will probably rock, the GUI I'm just not fond of, as long as a classic view is behind those stinking tiles...
My current PCs are so fast I probably won't upgrade until Win 10 or some such so maybe it doesn't matter ;}
