It's just a never-ending bitching about windows this and windows that. It if suits your tasks, use it, if it doesn't don't. I use KDE 90% of the time at my job for coding, testing, deploying, etc. At home I use windows to do some freelance work, code some shit for ARM devices and watch movies/play games. I'm a windows user since 95, and while with you on most of the 8.x metro problems, they are solved with a tiny tool called startisback or start8. And those are the guys who made a fucking fortune with all this situation. Every problem has a solution and while 8.x shouldn't bring all this inconveniences, it's a fucking stable OS that works A-ok. KDE crashes way more, Gnome is the same shit... Unity, well that is a fucking abomination. As for OSX, I just don't like it on a personal level so I won't comment on that.
Get over it and stop bitching, don't like it, don't use it. If you have to, fix it. Anyone who asks for help, well you can earn an extra bucks with them.
