Windows 7: Windows 7 Gets Ready to Leapfrog Windows XP on Desktop

20 Aug 2012   #11

Windows 10 Home x64

Win8 was developed specifically for mobile devices, tablets, smart phones, etc... (my opinion)

I haven't had any experience with Win8 myself. Comments from those who have tried it don't sound like it would be a workable OS for a corporate/business desktop environment.

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

Windows 8 was never designed to replace Windows 7. Microsoft just hasn't found the gubla gaas to tell the world. It is designed for a completely different market. The new wave of poking on apps like a big cell phone. Their is a big market for such things and Apple is proof of that. You can't do much on them but the people that buy these toys don't want to much other than poke it and something happens. Easy to transport and show off to the in crowd. This is no small feat, that market is billions of dollars and a large share will have to be taken from competitors. I can see in the future that when buying a PC/Laptop of having the choice of Windows 7 or Windows 8. I can't see Windows 8 as it is today taking Windows 7 place. Microsoft has a huge market share with Windows 7. They are not going through that away with a toy like Windows 8. Some good improvement that are in Windows 8 could be applied to Windows 7 with a SP-2. Now is not the time to boost up Windows 7 when you are trying to sell Windows 8.
Just think in the PC operating system market it's Microsoft competing against Microsoft. In the computer toy business it Microsoft against Apple and the rest of the world.
