Windows 7: Upgrading Vista to Windows 7: what's the lowest-price path???

04 Nov 2012   #11

Windows XP Pro SP3, Windows 7 Pro 32-bit, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, Windows XP Home SP3

yes, 99 OEM was the lowest I saw.

to the last poster, its the other way around if you see the OP: the user is using win8 CP now and doesn't like it. I've seen this several times: the fact that one can click the lower left tile and go straight to the 'Desktop' interface just seems unbearable... Its like a psycho-pathology thing - baffling to me. the other thing is "how do I access my stuff" .... uhhh... see that folder picture? click it. it just seems unbearably difficult for whatever reason. very strange, but of the people I've tried to push it to, not one has been enthused. I sorta like 8 myself - sorta.... not enough to pay money for it but I like it for techie reasons. the people that MS needs to reach are not.
But to be more emphatic - they people MS has GOT to reach are not pc/laptop users - those don't matter anymore. they MUST get relative marketshare in the handheld space or they become a very different looking company in about 24 months flat. merely "holding their own" is disastrous

I won't have to steer people away from W8, the fingerprints on the screens will will make them down grade to W7.
If anyone puts a fingerprint on my 17.5", 1080P, 120kHz, Brightview screen,,,,I'll break there fingers!

This W8 idea of a touch screen for notebooks is such a bad idea,,,,,Fingerprints on my tablet is bad enough, I don't want them on my lappy!
