I and you are being forced to use these stupid OSes.

I hate computers sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much, I hate em all. I hate every single one of them. We had some good times, yes but honestly I could have actually been learning something all of that time.

  Nah, Server 2008 is actually my favourite OS along with Vista, but Server 2003 is second. If I wanted to, I could still use 2003. They're not stupid OSes, I've used all those for a long time. I remember when I got Server 2008 through Dreamspark while studying IT back in 2008, it was very great.

  As for actual desktop use, Vista is still the best option, as it already has those necessary files to play most games, which require DX11, and MS bothered to include DX11 in Vista and Server 2008 SP2 with the platform update, that's why you can play games like GTA V on that OS, for example. It's just, the community support for NT 6.0 diminishes fast, as no one would bother to use Vista at this time. 

  My work rig runs awesome with 2008 and Vista, as it has one of the most robust CPU architectures ever released, which is Sandy. I thought about getting a Haswell CPU (probably a 4790K or a 5820K) for a new build I'll make in this year's fall, but not sure if some boards I thought about purchasing have good support for those OSes, I'll find a way to sort that out.

Nobody's forcing you to use anything just go off the grid. Problem solved.
