Hp Urges Consumer Customers Not To Downgrade New Pcs To Windows 7

That's what I think too. They are throwing their core customers (Desktop PC users) under the bus to sell WP8 and Tablets.
I think it will backfire!

I see no upside to Windows 8. None of my (many) screens which range from 13" to 37" are touch-capable.
And I really need to be cleaning my screen every two hours because I get fingerprints on it.
These dumbed-down OSes for handheld electronics are bad enough (and I have no choice), but now you think I'm going to put one on a REAL PC? I'd sooner go back to Win 3.11...
The reason hardware vendors are making such a big push on 8 are (1) habit of subservience to M$, (2) opportunity to sell high-margin touchscreens to users stuck with it, (3) people will buy anything new if it's hyped enough (look at Apple).
Sorry, M$, you don't have the design OR marketing chops of Apple. We still don't have a file manager that can get in the ring with the Mac Finder. Norton Commander for DOS was better! Excel's clipboard is STILL broken. Word still can't get it's numbering straight. FIX WHAT'S BROKEN! before you expect me to get excited about this Windows 9 Beta. Should we call it "Son of Vista," or "The Return of BOB?"
Great for software vendors, too--now ALL your apps are "legacy." Anyone out there that's not in the Linux camp have less than 4 figures' worth of commercial software?
"progress for the sake of marketing is not progress"

THIS is exactly why I chose Windows OS's over MAC's OS's
- - - Built-in 'Propriortary Systems', where the consumer has NO SAY as to upgrades (or Downgrades, like Win 7), Making expensive software - The "older systems" become 'bricks' before their time!
