I've been messing with Windows 8 and from a performance standpoint it's pretty nice. I can overlook the wacky UI for now. Hopefully in the next version though they scrap it.
When I upgraded to Win 7 I changed everything about the UI to act like Windows XP: using Classic Shell, etc. It's a nice way to enjoy the benefits of a new OS and not deal with most of the headaches. For several months I just hated that "Favorites" was at the top of Explorer forcing me to scroll down to the drive letter I wanted. But just in the last couple of weeks I've started to appreciate it, removing the ones I didn't care about and adding my own. So it just took me some time to come around. I think a new UI should let you do that: give you the option to add new features at your own pace.

The one annoyance I still have is when I highlight a filename by single clicking twice in Explorer Windows 7 never includes the extension anymore so I have to go through the extra hassle of selecting the entire filename.
