    Same goes to Ms if they are less greedy. Imo Win XP is by far the best OS that Ms had, but they decided to kill it.

    I switched over to Ubuntu Linux. never looked back. approx 100% virus proof.

    Fast and no bloatware. Very stable system. almost NEVER crash...

    Unfortunately (or fortunately?) it is also Game-proof. I don't like WINE or other VM/Emulators either...

    For me Win 7 is the best, faster and more stable than XP. I only play a bit with 8.x, but I think its quite promising.

    Actually my problem with Linux is that its too fragmented to have anything stable or sustainable.
    Maybe with the exception of Redhat. I think OSX is the best bet if you want to go to *nix route.
    Hardware is another matter.. but I'm tempted to build a Hackintosh.

    It is not obvious in your postings that the uninstall of the Intel or Nvidia VGA drivers before upgrading to Windows 8.1 doesn't help. Thanks for the clarification.

    Windows 8 was ok.

    I am getting Wifi problems with 8.1 and I'm not the only one. Apparently 8.1 makes you have to connect manually to the Wifi everytime you start up, even if you've selected "connect automatically".
