“Windows 7 is Back” Says HP

HP looks as though it is taking its stand against Windows 8. Over the weekend the company sent its customers emails, informing them that “Windows 7 is back”.

The PC making company has launched a new promotion on its website, offering people a saving of $150, if they choose Windows 7 rather than Windows 8.

If the message isn’t clear enough, then the slogan “back by popular demand”, should clear everything up. Upon entering the website, if you select to browse HP’s selection of desktop PCs, then you’ll notice that you are only given the option of Windows 7 machines by default. If you want to view Windows 8 PCs, then you have to actually customize the search using the optional filters. When searching for laptops, it is pretty much the same, though there are a few Windows 8 laptops included in the results. When it comes to the all-in-one section of the site, Windows doesn’t even get a look in, with the main feature being the company’s Android-powered PC.

I think I have 7 and my wife has 8.  If I catch anyone trying to put 8 on my computer we'll slide on the floor.

Windows 7 is a great product, it is noticeably much better than xp for laptops. I can just close the lid on my laptop and it stands by easily and then powers up quickly when I open it.

According to a report I read a couple of weeks ago, Microsoft will release Windows 9 (code name threshold) in Spring 2015. Some said it would be Windows 8.3 but apparently Microsoft are reluctant to do that after the mess of Windows 8.

The Start menu will re-appear but only in the desktop version.

I put off buying a new laptop because of Windows 8, but then I no longer had a choice...I now have a severe dislike for Windows.  I am glad someone is bringing 7 back.  Hopefully 9 is more like 7 and 8 can be forgotten for the nightmare it is...

Canonical are bringing out a version of Ubuntu that will work across PCs, tablets and phones.

See http://www.ubuntu.com/tablet

Watch the video

If Canonical can do it why can't big organisiations like Microsoft & Google do it?

Microsoft has tried.  Windows 8 stinks.  Ubuntu can try, but many use Linux Mint instead because they hate Unity.

It's not that Windows did it, but that they did it poorly.

If what I have seen of "unity" is any clue, Canonical is doing it poorly as well.
