Windows 8 RT 32bit. I am a newbie of Windows 8 OS. However, it is good especially it supports touch-sensitive display.

Xubuntu as main OS on my desktop, XP comes next on it. Windows XP on another testing laptop, WIndows 7 on another two laptops, and Windows 8 on a brand new one.

Windows 8 sucks! I've removed it from all my HD's and I've gone back to old faithful (windows XP).
As for Windows XP updates, turn them OFF and forgetaboutit. !!!
MS Updates for XP are crashing systems all over the world. I think those MS bas****s are doing it on purpose to force people to upgrade their OS. In the last two months, I've had to recover several PC's that were trashed by MS Updates.
I'm not playing their stupid games.

Oh my, I bet they would do that intentionally, though it may be hard living like that, since I got windows XP on my Desktop and now I don't really want to check for updates. Also how will it be possible to upgrade to SP3 if needed? (when done a new install)
If they're doing it on purpose, then it may be true, since they didn't patch the layer 7 DDoS on windows 7 and above for [some] reason, and only CISCO patched it last time I checked.
They're on about something.

If you have to install XP, you should be using a DVD that has been Slipstreamed with SP3.
I made my own several years ago, when SP3 was first released.
Those disks are out there........by the tens of thousands. Just look around!
It doesn't matter what disk, or who's disk you use, as long as you have the registration key for your PC. Eh?
I think I still have SP3 on CD. ???
You can probably still download it.

If you have a popular branded computer, such as Dell or HP, XP Pro reinstall CD's w/SP3 are for sale on eBay for less than $25, sometimes $15. No COA is usually asked for, as the MB & BIOS is checked at the time of install. Also, no activation, as the OS is pre-activated.
It doesn't matter if you have a "Home" edition, the "Pro" versions installs just fine. I've reinstalled many Dells in this fashion & they all passed Genuine Validation. Not a single one has been brought back to me w/activation/validation issues, years after the install.
One can even downgrade a Dell computer with Vista in this manner. Don't know about 7, as I don't know anyone who wanted to trade 7 for XP.
It won't be a possibility with Windows 8 Pro (pre-installed computers), Vista SP2 will be as low as one can downgrade. I don't see this happening, not with Vista anyway.
Currently, I have two computers running only XP, another (this one) dual booting Win 7 Ultimate & 8 Pro, & another running 7 Pro & dual booting 8 RP (that will soon change to 8 Pro).
One of the XP machines (the Dell) will probably soon be dual booting with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (5 year support).
I haven't had any issues with XP updates (so far). Yes, SP3 can be downloaded & installed by CD, prior to going to Windows Update. Actually, I've found this to work better, as some SP2 machines has trouble with the Windows Update site.
Here is the standalone SP3 for XP. The Full deal, not the stripped down "home" type version from Windows Update. It can be ran from a Flash drive, CD, or copied over to the Documents folder for fast install.

I use many OS, but my go to OS is windows7 64bit. Windows 8 is a new toy , I have it on two computers, as a dual boot. However I use it less and less. Windows7 is just sooooo good that I find windows8 lacking. Windows 7 is easier to use, easier to find free software that works with it. I just like it better.

Currently installed in my netbook is Windows XP SP2. On our desktop PC we use Windows XP SP3, we have not upgraded to Windows8 yet.

I ran Windows 8 beta test versions for 9 months, before it was formally released.
After that, I removed it from my system.
So I'm back to good ol' Windows XP.

I'm currently using Win 7
