Windows 8.x is a mess... we have tried to avoid it as much as possible
where I operate. Those few who for reasons of new computers are using it
are as unhappy as the Vista users were in those days. I am trying out
Windows 10 and it is way better.
But for me it is Kubuntu that is my choice and for now I stay on 14.10
while running 15.04 in a Vbox to "keep an eye" on how it matures.
