I'm currently running Windows 8.1
I've got a few third-party applications running that mimic Window 7's interface

Well, it's idiotproof.

You know, I got so used to Windows, I kinda appreciate its idiotproofing sometimes. Unfortunately, that means I have a really hard time switching over to Ubuntu.

Don't even bother, ubuntu is backdoor bloated shit and probably the worst experience you can think of when it comes to linux. I've seen the "Linux is shit, I tried ubuntu and it's really terrible" thing a lot and I really doubt it will be a good idea.
There are better "friendly" distros, like fedora, or even mint, though I personally don't really recommend this last one.

My first flavor of linux was sabayon, a gentoo-based distro, and I really enjoyed it, but devs went full goy and now they only update for x64-bit CPUs. If your computer has one, though, I encourage you to do some research and see if it suits you.
Arch may or may not be a suitable option depending on how curious you are and your interest for linux. Some say it's the ideal distro for new people, others say it could be a nightmare. It's a good distro nonetheless, when shit doesn't fuck itself.

Here, likely, in other places, no.

if you ignore metro and it's exactly the same as 7

I second the "idiot-proof" thing. It feels like I have less control over advanced settings, but my customers at work like how simple it is.

After using 8.1 for just over 3 months, I really do not like it. I've got the Windows 7-style thing installed, and that does little to make it better. I have less control, I don't understand why OneDrive is such a big deal, and there is literally not one single app that I either need or want on my computer because of how terrible they are.

Windows 8 is pure shit. One should not have to install third-party applications and disable core OS features to make it feel like something usable.

As for Linux, I prefer Mint. Because I'm lazy and don't feel like micromanaging every aspect of my system (see also: Arch, Gentoo). But alas, no games. Windows 7 still works fine, so I use it.

It's shitty because they tried to force tablet-style computing on users that don't even have a touch screen.

 No.17811

The only pro windows 8 has is that it's not windows 10.

 No.17812

>>17811
On the other hand, W10 has native bash support; you can even run linux programs inside a terminal running X, native. They've literally done what wine has been trying to do for the past 24 years in no time at all. The shitty design and telemetry things are a problem, but you can always switch those off. It's still shitty, but not all of that is shitty.

Features and stuff like that aren't pluses for me when it comes to os'. The interface is the most important part. Frankly, I wish they just stuck to windows xp's interface while only improving the computers themselves. As far as interface goes, xp is as good as it gets in terms of appearance and functionality. Every change they made to it in vista and so on was completely unnecessary. Windows 10 has an unacceptable interface. It is vomit inducing.

Windows 10 will be worse.
