Its really bad if you're not good with visual change, like if you change your shirt, and whip into a furious rage as you look into the mirror, it might be best to stick with what you like until you're forced to move forward :P But... its not bad if you're willing to adjust.

Using ubuntu and sharing how to as well as collecting how to scripts for common programs. Feel free to ask or share ^-^

If you are inflexible and unwilling to adjust then Windows 8/8.1 isn't for you.  On the other hand, if you can adjust and are always willing to learn new ways of doing things then Windows 8/8.1 ain't bad.  Personally, I don't understand what all the Windows 8/8.1 bashing is about.  I have absolutely no difficulties using it.  Besides, you can always install Classic Shell to make it look and function like Windows 7, Vista or XP.

I'm not a fan of Win 8RT, but the standard 8/8.1 seems just fine to me. I do personally find it much more intuitive to use with a touchscreen then just the mouse and keyboard, but it's still not a bad experience either way. When using it with a touchscreen I actually prefer it to Win7.
