"The Windows UI has never been truly atrocious, except in Win 8 of course. "

Even win 8 wasn't that bad if you only used it with a touch-screen. We had a bunch of Sony tablet-laptop convertible things that it came pre-installed on; using it 'natively' on the touchscreen was actually quite good.

The moment you plugged in a keyboard and mouse like a civilized human being, on the other hand, it was a complete nightmare of trying to use gestures and swipes with input devices that simply don't translate.
