Did you miss the part where I stated "My Company laptop"?

It is one of 23,000 that we have as a company with XP on it. My home systems have Win7.

Likely MS isn't going to be working hard for those on legacy systems. I still don't understand why programs that work on XP don't work on 7 or 8. I'd love to see an example that I can personally test.

I haven't really found any software that will NOT RUN in newer OS's. Even old system softwares which use Borland databases (w95 to xp support) work flawlessly in W8 (thugh some have to be installed and used as admin + windows xp SP3 compatibility mode. But there it is. What w7 and w8 do have is a higher control over permissions over the windows registry which can mess up older software, but you can always manually set permissions with regedit.

I work for GlobalOmniCorp (might as well be) and they just started pushing Windows 7 to the desktop earlier this year. I doubt we will see another desktop OS on corporate equipment for 5 years at least.

I think the upper level dudes (like SVP and up) have the option of using a Mac if they want, but it is not an option to the general public (nor would I want to). They still have to use MS Office though.

By the time 7 is old and grey 8 will have worked out the kinks to blend together I'm sure. Or at least an app to make it seem so. With all the usual things we are all use to from the XP & 7 days. To me it is all job justification to trot out new stuff so the 'selling' goes unimpeded into the new eras. Kinda like cars in the old days new models and all. Just my opinion.

When did people become so stupid? This isn't an issue as we all know that EVERY os MS has made was sour grapes until the first big service patch save for a few (98, Millenium, Vista.) Also we have seen a trend that every other OS that MS has put out has been pretty good (NT, XP, 7.) Now what does this mean for us as consumers? It means clearly MS learns from their mistakes. They put out something that people don't care much for and they change it so that their consumer base doesn't ***** as much. Then the next OS is back to the drawing board for a new creative(ish) idea. You all complain about how MS is going to put out garbage and that your going to linux. The percentage of users who might go to linux aren't exactly the group they are catering to. Most of the users they market to probably don't know that linux exists. You are on a website where you modify all the stuff you can, are you really super worried about MS supporting a product? Sad day.

Totally agree Skillers Inc, well put. Most of the new things introduced are beneficial in the long run and it is one big learning process. Now if there was a dictionary/encyclopedia/reference guide to Command Prompts listing everything I would be one happy camper.

Windows 8.1 Pro is good much smoother you would know a difference even with your hardware.
