MS Does It Again(19 posts)
This is Really BAD News for Desk Top Users.
I don't understand MS's reasoning for doing a such thing.
Guess we'll all start to love Linux and old Windows 7 now.
Windows 7 FULL Edition DVDs and USBs will be selling like "Hot Cakes" for the next 6 months.
Best Advice is to Buy a copy while you still can !!!!
I like the Metro interface on my Windows phone but on my desktop??? NOT going to happen! I've used every version of Windows ever released including ME (Misery Everlasting) but from what I've seen so far, I will pass on Windows 8. What is Microsoft thinking? IS MIcrosoft thinking?? One has to wonder....
In answer to your question above:
If Budget Permits, Purchase Windows 7 Ultimate Retail Edition.
If you need to save a bit of money, purchase Windows 7 Pro Retail Edition.
The Home Editions lack important features such as Group Policy, etc.. so best not to even consider them.
Also MS will probably crack down on using OEM Edition on multiple home PCs.
email: Windows 8 Release Preview is here
Oh well I thought I'd start installer and see what happen then the compatibility things popped up. As we all pre known, no dvd player and such
But secure boot? Have to look at that a bit. I have the late model MS #$%@& it's a dang UEFI you igmo's
@Cameochi, don't tell me you used BOB too???
Hey, IBM said the DESKTOP is DEAD, I think MS bought into that now, W8 being the proof. Well, not exactly dead, but if MS has its way now, it will be different. Basically an overgrown tablet. Some of the video's I've seen show a 'new' laptop with a touch pad that has gestures that makes running W8 much easier. Conjecture has it that new desktops will have touch screens as part of the W8 package.
MS has basically made even more difficult to use W8 like you had been before. Start Menu can't be made to show on boot and 3rd party stuff has been eradicated by removing base code.
Corporations will do the normal denial of the OS, not only for the above reasons. I don't think MS cares? Growth is expected to be in phones and tablets, no PC's. One code base if far easier to maintain than 2 or more. At some point you will have to move to it, maybe kicking and screaming, but it is inevitable.
