MS does the bad thing, they force proffesional and enthusist users to a toy interface that only works as advertisement center more than anything.

Microsoft, you can learn from HP, they have been in the market many years, and know what people want, you can do the same... right? Remember, loosin money is no business... are you earning money by not selling Windows 8 and trying even to give it for free?

Thanks HP, I would gladly buy another product from you anytime, because you care about ME
The only one HP cares about is HP. They certainly never cared for me.

So very true. At least HP understands that it is in the interest of their bottom line to provide what the customer wants. M$ seems to feel that they can dictate what the customer wants.

I am no fan of HP, I feel that they have compromised too much quality in the name of profitability. Dell is still selling Win 7 machines.

Nice to know they're bringing back OEM Windows 7. I have an OEM Windows 7 from HP (laptop) and it works good enough, at least since I removed the bloatware. Also, if I would get a new laptop what brand should I choose? And who still sells Windows 7 machines? I guess not many...

So far, I've seen some HP and Lenovo machines and read somewhere that Dell is still selling a few. Keep in mind those sales will have to end sometime in October.

I do recall that after Vista was rolled out, Dell continued to offer XP for quite some time, ultimately charging a $99 "downgrade" fee. I helped several clients navigate the process, they were even willing to pay the additional charge. I wouldn't be suprised to see the same scenario play out until the supply of licenses for 7 is exhausted. Maybe I should load up on retail copies of 7.......

You are too late for loading up on retail licenses. The few for sale now are either grossly inflated in price or are counterfeit (or both). OEM copies are still available...for now.

It must be good business for HP otherwise they wouldn't do it.
