Lol, why would MS lose out if they kept Aero, start menu and allowed the removal of Metro on desktops? Surely making those "handful (
, it's more than that) of people to be happy would increase sales.
And also, since when did Windows 7 become free? Supplying any Windows OS to OEM's nets them money.
Honestly, you are fighting a losing battle here and completely clutching at straws.
Windows 8 is NOT a mobile-only OS, which is why it comes in an x86 variation despite there being an extremely thin number of x86 tablets available. Which is why the consumer previews and sucha re all x86 previews. Everyone I've spoken to understands the reasons for Metro but doesn't want it on a Desktop.Edited by Rubers - 5/23/12 at 5:56am
