Pretty much everybody agrees that Windows 7 is the greatest operating system of all time, and Windows 8 was coming after a tough act to follow. But they made it much worse to appeal to tablets when most people are still on PCs. The update Windows 8.1's main appeal is even to bring back the Start menu to make it look more like Windows 7, at which point what's the point of not just bringing back Windows 7 altogether? Nobody would miss Windows 8 if it were gone; why not just quickly release Windows 9 now with a few updates and have it very similar to Windows 7?

Who's this "everyone" you speak of? I for one love Windows 8, and I know I'm not the only one

not changing this sig until "being an idiot" is a moderation reason

Windows XP is the greatest OS of all time IMO.

Windows 8.1 is better than Windows 7 IMO.
