Windows 8.1 is the way to go

With all the talk surrounding Windows 8 (and 8.1) and Windows XP's support deadline, I feel people have been harsh on Microsoft.
I wouldn't elaborate on any cool features Windows 8 boasts but rather the stuff that I care about. Windows 8 enhances Windows 7's functionality.
Win7 was a great system, yet it had one issue. Whenever I used my favorite flashdrive (sandisk), and I chose to safely remove it, the blue light would stay on. Even after searching the whole internet I couldnt find the solution.
Then I upgraded to Win8 in 2013 and bam! The light went off when I safely removed the USB. Moreover, Win8 displayed a picture of my USB as the icon, something which Win7 never did.
So in addition to the important features, Win8 packs some small tweaks which make it efficient.
