SockMonkeyHolocaust: Reaper, Photoshop and Steam run just fine on 7, thank you.
Ambivalence: I wonder if they'll call the version after this one Windows X.
Take us to the Threshold!
Ghastly: Are they still flogging that tired, Metro interface?
ClavellBCMI: And this explains why Microsoft wants to end most support for Win7 in 2015... to *force* people to either upgrade to 8 (FARK NO as far as business users are concerned, most are still transitioning over to 7) or buy 9 when it comes out (good luck with that one if they are still trying to ram Metro down our throats).

Nick Nostril: That reminds me. I need to hit fleabay for a copy of win7 to put on my current win8 machine./what an obamanation
orclover: My mother got a laptop with windows 8 on it a few weeks ago so of course I have to do tech support for her constantly. From what I have seen of windows 8 it is the tablet philosophy crammed into a PC o/s. It goes as follows:1.YOU WILL ONLY LOOK AT WHAT WE WANT YOU TO LOOK AT!2. Every little thing you want to do, is an app, you will likely have to pay for that app.3. Customize? Sure, you can customize what we say you can customize.4. STOP TRYING TO CHANGE THINGS! GIVE US MONEY!Windows 9 will be more of the same, all of the software companies want control over what you can buy and what their cut will be. This is to take away your choice, you will do what they say and pay for it or you can go play with linux like those losers you keep hearing about. Your not a poor loser are you? Another 10 years and we are farked. God I hate this./i'm..I...I wil....i'm just gonna go move into a log cabin in northern canada and not deal with this shiat any more.
