    Win 7.... OK..
    Win 8.... Horrid
    They need to keep their clients on side seeing that a lot of newer tablets not bothering with Microsoft.

    That's interesting, but only free for the first year. Perhaps illustrates how wrong they got W8.

    Is that because it may be the first one ever that actually works?

    You can configure it to 'act' similar to Win7
    Google it.
    Agreed, it's a pain in the butt

    I have used Window 8.1 for sometime and think it's fine, why get it to look/feel like Windows 7, it's different......its Windows 8.1 if you think Windows 7 then for sure you won't like it.

    Us Mac users are used to free operating system upgrades. ;) I agree about WIN 8; awful software, still using Win 7 and feel no need to pay for an upgrade, Win 7 is brilliant, 10 would have to be much better and free to get me to move from it.
