It says on the development of the Windows 8 UI page that earlier versions of windows were just too hard to use...
IMO: Windows XP is probably the most user freindly OS out there.
Somebody hasn't heard of NT6. They haven't heard of a dictionary either.

There are two builds shown in the video. Neither of them are 58s. They are both earlier than that, they are Chicago builds from December 1992 or January 1993. (58s is from August 1993) Install 58s yourself. Look at the three pre-Start buttons yourself. Do they look like what's shown in that video? No, they don't.
^This. Don't base facts on thoughts. Use solid evidence and experience.

Chicago Usability Test Release is build 34 and the build shown in that video must be 34 if you look at the "three" buttons' icons in the early taskbar. Watch this video and compare it to microsoft's one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbVRWziUHdY
