M$ will have fewer channel OEM partners, if this windows 8 madness continues! The customer demnds windows 7 on their new hardware, or it is no sale! The customer is allways right, M$, get a windows 7 option on new hardware, and get more M$, or continue with the METRO crap and get delisted form the stock exchange![/citation]
Have you even used windows 8? I thought I was going to hate 8 when I got my new computer but I actually like it a lot. You still have the desktop like win7 and the metro start menu thingy isn't all that hard to use if you know how to scroll right. Win8 just isn't too great for the desktop market since most of the little tricks are for a touchscreen or touchpad.

Lol, that documentation you speak of is not at all helpful. The problem with linux is that if I install it on my laptop I lose nearly all of the functionality it has except for basic functions. Everything else like hot keys, the wifi card, touchpad drivers, ect. I need to dig around and find since each laptop is different. I would only use linux on a desktop because you don't have all of that to deal with.
To be fair, I did put ubuntu on my laptop and it was able to get most of the basic functionality installed, but the wifi card, which I had to setup on my own. It's just too much of a hassle to be honest. It because a cost vs. benefit thing and since I can get win7 copies for free why would I even bother? And no, not through pirating.
