Operating systems are all based on opinion. Some people prefer #!, some people prefer Ubuntu, some prefer Arch, and some prefer Gentoo. This doesn't mean that any new OS is bad, it just means that they prefer something different. This extends out to Windows OS's as well; I personally think Windows 8 is a complete piece of shit in every conceivable way (don't even get me started on Metro or UEFI), but that doesn't mean that it's a bad Operating System, it's just not for me.

Because they've never used it and they don't like the idea of liking something new and sleek looking.Those people are fucktards and are just following the crowd. Windows 8 is amazing. It's fast, uses a lot less memory, more secure, and extremely easy to use and move around in. It's not ALL metro. The desktop is still there. Plus dual monitors in win8 is SUPER slick. WIth an ssd, I get boot in 1 second flat. No joke.
You do realize that you're doing the same thing as those who are on the opposite side of the argument are doing, right? You have to at the very least present both sides of the argument, and then let the other person make an informed decision for what's best for them. Especially with someone who obviously hasn't had enough experience to make an informed decision for themselves.

How do you not have as much control on a laptop? Really, besides the mouse, it's the same thing (and you can even add a mouse to it). Besides, once Windows has a good CLI (my God, could they have picked a more ugly font and a more difficult program/set of commands to work with?), and has native VIM (not gVim) ported, I'll think about developing on it.
