I held onto win2000 for a while into winxp's life, and then i held onto windowsXP until I got around to upgrading my laptop to windows 7. If my history is any indication, i'll keep windows 7 for a good bit longer. But I am interested in getting a tablet with windows 8 sometime in the future.

I may install Win 8 back on my laptop, only if they fix it working with my drivers though.
