I have been terribly comfy with my Win7 and Ubuntu Xenial setup for quite some time now, but I know Win7 is dying, and I want to upgrade my Ubuntu install as well. My main machine is a super comfy and capable Precision laptop I bought through Dell small business.

1. The OEM SLP license on my machine causes problems when attempting to install Win8.1 (because the license is a Windows 10 one with downgrade rights to 7). So Windows 8.1 seems like a no-go. I hate Win10, but it looks like I'm going to have to migrate over to it soon. Is the May update good, and is there any way I can get around Win8.1 failing to install because of the SLP license? Every single time it would finish the install, then I'd boot into my Windows drive and it would tell me the install failed, and bring me back to 7. 10 installs fine, but every time I've booted into it I said 'fuck no' within 5 minutes and restored my 7 image.

2. I tried Ubuntu Bionic (18.04 LTS), and it's horrendous. Absolutely disgusting. Gnome3 is trash, and ruins the entire UI experience I have enjoyed with Unity. I'm trying out Ubuntu Budgie, and also the twocamels Unity 7 Remix ISO. Is there anything else I should be checking out? I loved Xfce for years, but its out of the running because it doesn't play nice with HiDPI screens, and tweaking it out to do so is a pain in the ass. Is KDE / Plasma a good option at this point too?

I actually use this thing to get work done (I work as a SysAdmin for a small network of schools), so rolling release distros are not an option. Unity allowed me to be productive on GNU / Linux, and the Windows 7 interface is nothing but practical, especially if you use a squared window borders visual style.

What is happening to classic and time tested desktop environments? I just want to slap a numix theme on my GNU / Linux distro and have everything work without glitches, a ton of tweaking, and distracting animations. I just want my Windows install to not spy on me too much, and look half-decent.

You're on the right track for becoming a code monkey. Seriously kid, maybe try paying attention to your fucking courses instead of running after easy corporate money!
