If the alternative is windows 8 I don't mind paying a massively overinflated price and before anybody recommends linux that is also pretty complicated I tried ubuntu out for a while and although I like most of the freeware downloading and installing some programmes is very difficult and time consuming and ended up me googling it to find out how. I prefer an OS which has an ease of use.

That doesn't include the massively overinflated prices you have to pay for a mac.

Exactly; Apple has started some of the features of iOS that make sense to be on a full size computer and put them into OS X; Microsoft tried to copy this but did it with features that are ridiculous to do this with.

Windows 8 is just unbearable. It is the only time where I have actually got lost around a desktop in my 13 years of using computers. Even the Program Manager shell in the Windows 3.x series was much easier than Metro.
There is absoloutly no need for the Metro interface to be added to desktop computers and laptops. It was designed for touch screen systems, not for pc's using keyboards and mice. Microsoft even advised that people use the keyboard if they haven't got touch screen, which kind of defeats how Metro is supposed to work.
If all subsequent releases of Windows are like this, I'm just going to stick with Windows 7 until support ends in 2020, after which I may switch to Linux (if that hasn't gone **** as well).
