2014: The year of Windows 7?

If you’re still scratching your head over why HP is pushing Windows 7 over Windows 8, this might give you a clue. Shawn Allaway, the CEO of Windows migration assistance firm ConverterTechnology, tells Network World that the impending death of Windows XP has led many of his customers to ask about upgrading their systems… but not to Windows 8. In fact, Allaway says that none of his customers have chosen Windows 8 so far and most of them will likely upgrade to Windows 7 instead.

That's interesting to me because I never installed - used Vista on any of my PC's.
Going over the call volume & logs from work maybe 3 out of 20 users have W8, the rest are on 7 or finally moving to 7 from XP. Wait, I remember a caller with Vista.

I don't think they mean it literally.

The point being Vista did badly for them. Win8x has also done badly for them. Worse in fact. More of a problem for MS is that when Vista was around, the consumers sat it out, they didn't have anywhere else to go.

With 8x, MS has been losing customers. They may never get them back.

( I quite liked Vista )

definitely a interesting read there on this article. And somehow i dont blame them totally. As everything Ive heard from people about windows 8 has not been very positive unfortunately. Just another reason to keep windows 7 for now.

I also liked Vista (this was my first Windows 64 install), but I waited almost a year after I bought it to install it. I waited for the first service pack before I installed it.

I wish Microsoft would have adopted this philosophy for Windows 8 instead of panicking and developing a one size fits all OS:

Interesting statement in that too that MS maybe thought W8 would "reignite interest in the PC". I don't see how, since W8 is made for, aimed at mobile touchy-feely-tappy devices and takes some fiddling to work well on a PC. I think what MS is attempting is to simply go head-to-head with Apple.

I work in health care. We have over 25,000 devices we will have to migrate off XP. We will be going to Windows 7. Infomation is life blood in health care. If it ain't right, nobody gets paid. Ever work with physicians?

Yeah, I visit them and would be more concerned about my info and health than a paycheck.

I went from Windows 95 to Vista, then to 7. While I liked Vista & had no problems with it, I do prefer 7 as it faster & is the best OS from MS so far.
