I'm not kidding, it's total junk. It's all about the GUI. It takes two to five times the clicks to get things done in Vista/7 and clearly 8. Windows Explorer in example, XP I just click on a cut button, in Vista/7 I have to click on organize, hold the button down, drag it to cut, let go, nothing happens, click a second time. They got rid of the classic start menu and then replaced it with a massive goofy menu, hid the run menu option; TweakUI does not work with Vista/7 to remove the useless menu delay. The shut down menu is a drop down instead of INSTANT one-click access buttons in XP, so you have to click FIVE times to restart the computer in Vista/7 whereas in XP you click start (one), shutdown (two) and restart (three). In Windows Explorer when you click on a folder in the folder panel is automatically expands subfolders however in Vista/7 even with the option in the folders options enabled it doesn't work. You have to double-click to expand folders which is anti-intuitive.
Everything about Vista/7/8 is horrible and works against productivity. I could go on and on pointing out all the things they've done to destroy the Windows GUI if you want and by the time I'm done I'll convince you XP was Microsoft's peak and Windows 7 is completely unusable.
