Seriously, Win7, to me, is the best of the best.

Leave metro out of it, isn't there some technical improvements with 8 over 7?

It boots faster since it doesn't let you shut down (Forced Sleep or Hibernate, instead... you can fully shut down but it's a chore to get there.)
It has a fancier Task Manager
It has a ribbon interface for the file manager explorer (If you like that).
It runs in a smaller footprint than 7 (because of tablets).

That's about it. Whooptie-doo.

The majority of Win 8's "features" was to add metro and integrate an app store, then ram them down your throat.
