I will keep with Windows 7 as long as I absolutely can.

Me too. I'm in no hurry to upgrade. As long as Windows 7 will get safety updates for the next 5 years, I'll keep using it. Works great for me.

I went ahead and upgraded my home computer from Windows 7 to Windows 8.1. The only reason was that work gave me a copy of Windows 8.1 and I figured since I was forced on to Windows 8.1 at work, might as well get used to it at home. With that said, I'll definitely upgrade to Windows 10 when it comes out. I did test Windows 10, so I already know I like the look and feel of it over 8.

But, I'm always willing to roll back to Windows 7. I really feel Windows 7 was a home run for Microsoft.

I defend 8 quite a bit. I did not in the beginning. Having said that:

My disdain for Windows 8 goes way beyond the Metro.
