Please return the price of Windows back to normal, charging your begrudging customers $200 for your entry level option just can't seem right, can it? Also please try to stick to only two flavors of your OS, I really do not see the point of an "Ultimate" edition, especially since the differences are minimal. It's also time to switch to 64-bit full time and kill all of this legacy garbage, I know it will make users really upset like that time you released Vista and it required users to upgrade their ram. They hated you for it, but then you just released Vista as 7 with some additional features and everyone loved it, well they already had the ram anyway so this way it didn't feel like they were getting slapped in the face. So if 8 flops, you can just release it as 9 and it will be all good. Now remember, a bloated operating system is a sad operating system and sad operating systems eat to feel better which causes a vicious cycle. If you want a happy, healthy operating system, you'll trim her down and exercise her regularly. They say you're just a cash cow, but I know there must have been some reason you decided to charge for an Xbox Live subscription when the competition offered theirs for free, it couldn't have been greed, it just couldn't have been. Well, dearest Microsoft, I know you won't let us down.
Wish you the best,
