No it's not. I'm not going to write here what they did to get those numbers, but let's just call it modern day corporate hypocrisy. Many of you know what I'm talking about.

I'll take a guess that you are referring to OEM presales?

Which have nothing to do with upgrade sales and aren't reflected in that 4Million upgrade number.


If you have some other insight, why don't you share it?

The insight I have is in a thread that was locked and the OP edited (original content completely removed) my a mod for a reason. That is all I will say.

Is there any way we can discuss Win8 in a specific context, instead of degrading to the "it's stupid" and "you're stupid" denominator? Ever? Again?

I have a perfect example for those who constantly throw around the term change as if it's fantastic:

My employer has just changed the way our internet infrastructure works. Prior to the change WiFi and the internet worked just fine, now the internet works intermittently, WiFi is a mess, a lot of websites don't work and it just cuts out for hours at a time, everyone hates it and even management are pissed. But we get told that it's change and going by the rhetoric in this thread we should all be overjoyed we can't get anything done.

I actually never noticed that there is windows 8 tablet on the billboard behind the bus as well. Chicago is all in windows 8 tiles. Any way I will still hold on to my win 7 until something bad happens and I need a clean install or windows 8 well optimized drivers will perform better overall compared to 7 which is not the case ATM thumb.gif

I really like Windows 8 and i like the idea but i think it need time to mature and fix problem. I am not going to play Beta testing with it. I am going back to Windows 7 because everything just works.
