Because with the right software it would make an awesome HTPC OS. And it's cheaper now then when the software comes out.

I wonder if they're jammed with calls wanting refunds because the touch buttons don't work on desktops and laptops, after punching the screen with a swollen finger furiously for hours.

Boy, I see there's a lot of hate for 8. Perhaps they should have called it Windows H8

H8 very good. I like that. I also notice your post count is right on 6000. Play the lottery.

I'm finally seeing some of the threads.
Getting "Creating Purchase Order Failed" when Buying Windows 8 via the Upgrade Assistant

We couldn't finish processing your order

it seems the issues are still not resolved. I just tried again (just for My laptop, as i still don't know what's happening with the money I already spent), and the program now constantly errors when I chose paypal (and doesn't like my Visa). So it seems they are still having problems and put a stop to prevent people getting charged for nothing. I'm just glad I only got charged the first time, otherwise I'd be out $126.

It's kind of disappointing how Microsoft outsources to companies that just can't handle the volume. At the bare minimum it should be possible to implement a queue where the system will attempt the transaction once it's not as overloaded, or a means of signalling that the system is overloaded and to try again later.
