- Windows 7 is good but I think users need a free version of Windows.
I'll be happy if Microsoft realease Windows 8 Ultimate for freeApr 18, 2012
- I use Windows and Android to run my life and company. It's the best of both worlds. I'm still looking for a tech blogger who essentially says 'SIMPSONS DID IT!' whenever a company announces a feature Windows did years ago.Apr 18, 2012
- It would be nice if hardware cost less without a Microsoft OS loaded. In theory, a person can get a refund if they don't want to use the pre-loaded OS. However, I don't think that works in practice. The price for Windows 7 Home Premium is $119.99. The price for Linux is $0. I wonder how many windows PC's would be running Windows if it had to be purchased and installed. Selling a product below cost to drive out competitors is called dumping. Linux runs so quickly that hardware manufacturers would be at an advantage to pre-load Linux. However, I think that Microsoft not only offers the OS at practically no cost to the manufacturer, but gives incentives for the manufacturer to pre-load Microsoft Windows.Apr 18, 2012
- I don't think it's cause they're the or where the biggest tech company I think it's because, when it comes to a desktop PC as popular as Ubuntu and OSX is there isn't really any escaping windows HUGE corporations use windows over osx on most the infrastructure and even apple macs can have windows 'boot-camped' and most the computer market is windows, and for the large group of people that can't afford osx it seems windows is the cheaper alternative and it's what most people are used to.
Furthermore I think when people hear the L word they get frightened because it's different I mean even or so it seems Ubuntu and Android avoid the L word.
I think osx gets away with it because its apple but I mean in Media, many people weren't used to OSX and even people that think they're good with computers found it confusing and complicated. I myself found it a breeze and hope to own one one day but I just think tech bloggers who are geeks lets be honest want to see competition. I'll be honest I don't care much for xbox live I do prefer SEN well I would if my PS3 hadn't had YLOD for past year. It was bought when it first came out. I got a brand new xbox 360 two christmas's ago and got Red Ring of Death three days later. I think vista was hated because it was different and came with so much crap and was incompatible with so much software to start with. I do prefer WIN7 but I think there will be a backlash when windows 8 comes out.
I have no idea why I write these long comments nobody reads them! I should have stooped earlier hahaApr 18, 2012
