We'll see if Microsoft is stupid enough to continue down the Windows 8 path even though its clear that it's a failure. I'll stick with Windows 7, until it's time to make another PC buy. Time to look for a new non-Windows OS then if need be.

If you use you can turn windows 8 into a proper desktop operating system, it not only brings back the start menu but can turn off all the metro bullshit like charms etc. There are enough improvements to the desktop space to warrant using it, just not quite enough to be worth upgrading from 7. But for a new system build I would go with 8 and then turn off all the metro crap.
This. I have done exactly that and couldn't be happier.
