If you want to stick with a Windows XP style interface, you should seriously consider using Linux Mint with its Cinnamon desktop.
After years of talk about the Linux desktop becoming important, it finally is. But thanks to Chromebooks and Android PCs, it's not the Linux desktop we expected.
The most tech-savvy U.S. president to date, Barack Obama uses the best devices and technology for the job, in and outside of the White House. Here's a look at some of the devices, platforms and technology he uses to carry out his day-to-day presidential duties.
Over the past year, I've used Windows 8 (and Windows 8.1) on at least 20 different PCs in a broad range of form factors, ranging from a Vista-era desktop to an amazingly light Haswell-powered Ultrabook with a Gorilla Glass cover. Here's a quick tour of these devices, along with my lessons learned from each one.
If you want an old-style, hard-working, windows, icons, menus, and pointer desktop, then what you want is Linux Mint 15.

Your next PC? It just might be a Chromebook.

The TLP X200 is an attractive and bright portable projector that suffers from poor contrast.
The 2209WA is a monitor with very few flaws. While we'd love to see 1:1 scaling, and the inset screen may cause some users grief, we wouldn't mind two of these sitting on our desk. This is the best 22-inch monitor we've seen.
The ASUS LS221H a very attractive, high quality monitor at a very competitive price.
AOC's latest 19-inch monitor from its Jenio range has brilliant colours and great ergonomics, but we would have liked to have seen a faster refresh rate than 60Hz at its native resolution.
Despite its thin and flimsy carry case, the NP905G2 projector straddles the line between portability and a full feature set very nicely.

The Optima Centoris KN offers top performance and above-average battery life. It's a great notebook, if you can live with the lack of certain features and its added bulk.
A reasonable PC, but totally misses the point of Media Center. As such, it's essentially a PC that happens to be running Media Center rather than the other way around.
The sub-2kg Prolite notebook includes a DVD burner and a decent set of features, but its battery life will not satisfy road warriors.
The sub-AU$2,000 video editing WorkPro from Optima features a large hard drive, a quick processor and a suite of video editing tools to keep future Spielbergs satisfied.
Optima Centoris G Series
