Purchased Movies and TV Shows on Xbox Live.

So I moved from Xbox to a PC. (Still Microsoft, Duh) I see that you can watch your movies on a PC if you have Windows 8... Which just happens to be the worst operating system. 

Just wondering if the DRM on these movies are so bad that only Windows 8 can watch movies? 

So I buy these movies and when I switch platforms and Microsoft feels the need to try and force me to buy windows 8?

I'm not entirely certain what you are asking.  If you are asking will you be able to purchase the movies on Windows 8 and then play them elsewhere then the answer is no.  They are only going to play in Xbox Video, which is exclusive to Windows 8 and Xbox (and maybe eventually Windows Phone 8).

I got Windows 7... Because touch screens on a phone is already enough.

You may be able to watch them in the Zune software, but only until the 22nd, the video marketplace is being shut down in the Zune software after that.
