Windows 7: HP bringing back Windows 7 desktops.

HP bringing back Windows 7 desktops.

In case you missed it, Hewlett-Packard (HP) last week began advertising the return of Windows 7 desktops. The OEM said its decision to sell Windows 7 systems in a Windows 8 world was influenced by "popular demand," but what we found interesting is how aggressively the world's second largest PC maker promoted its Windows 7 machines. Was there more than meets the eye?

Doesn't affect me, as I'm a builder who uses OEM releases.

The article is misleading. HP never stopped putting out Win 7 machines. They are just promoting them more since the deadline for selling them is in October this year.

Lenovo does have a new model (B590) notebook. I has several variations, some of which come with Win 7. Other variations are the kind of CPU, amount of RAM, and size of HDD. Amazon is one place that is selling them. I'm strongly considering getting one and keep my older Lenovo as a spare.

I think it's saying that they're favoring Windows 7 over Windows 8. Which imo is a good move. He's right, good news is never outdated

Well it's nice to see that a company is finally bringing back OEM Windows 7, most people seem to dislike windows 8. I 2 am one of those people that dislike windows 8, for the simple fact of the Metro UI. I would like to see all companies jump back to Windows 7 for the reason that maybe just maybe Microsoft will scrape the idea of a Metro UI and just go back to the old standard UI like we have seen since the early days of windows. There are many other ways to give a UI a fresh look with out making something that most people are going to dislike.

you know what would also be nice of they started re-selling Windows 7 as an upgrade from Vista and they started letting Anytime Upgrade to start working again so you can upgrade your edition if you wanted to and they need to sell the disc just in case some of those XP laptops and desktops can run Windows 7, but not 8.1

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit Build 7600 / Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3

HP does the right thing, they want to sell, they bring the popular stuff to people.
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
