Actually you are paying (or your parents are ... or other tax payers if you are scholarships at a public school ... or other people if you are on scholarships at a private school) about $75,000 for a copy of Windows 8 and they throw in a free 4 year degree. biggrin.gif

It all depends on how you look at it.

NOTHING in this world is free. It MAY be "free to you", but it is never free.

Thinking of it that way, you are paying for people like age_ruler1 to get Windows 8 free. How does that make you feel? biggrin.gif

With over 300 million more people on the planet, not to mention a larger percentage of people with "computers", I would hope they can pull off an increase in sales.

Er, well it makes sense to say that an increase in sales could be the increase in people buying new kit. More young adults over the last couple of years with money to spend.

EDIT:

at least "SOME" of those sales "COULD" be something like that.

Yes.

It's like when people are amazed that there are more crimes in the US even though the crime rate goes down. Welcome to the world of an ever increasing population.

Increasing number of total sales doesn't always mean an increasing percentage of sales as it relates to market share when an increasing population is in effect.

But then again, it's been 32 years since I took Statistics, Symbolic Logic, and Marketing in college, but I doubt it has changed all that much.

No, numbers have changed. 15 now means 79,487 and 36 now has the meaning of "Paul", for example. Also, simple things like 1 + 1 = 2 now mean 1 + 1 = Warmonger.

That seems more logical, what Microsoft planned on doing (simplifying cross platform capabilities) made it a huge success. The I still do enjoy them few who claim Windows 8 to be the next Vista. doh.gif

I find it hard to believe within 3 years, the world grew that much. And if it did people are struggling to make it by on life's essentials (food, shelter, etc). There is in fact less students going to college these days, because of our nations economical crisis. It's not population growth, im pretty sure the amount of places the OS can be used is a more viable explanation for its success.

Windows 8 is fine.

I just wish I had a touch screen. Or a way to remove Apps + Metro completely. So much overhead and bloat right now. It's incredible.
Although no longer noticeable with SSDs... I'm OCD when it comes to minimizing my OS's footprint.

Can you show us this "overhead" exactly? You do understand that the Start Menu banks its resources when not in use. Essentially when you're not in it, its as if its not even running.
