Interesting Ad From HP

Windows 7—back by popular demand Enjoy time limited savings on our latest HP notebook and desktop PCs—powered by the Intel® Core™ processor family running Windows 7.
I guess the general negative reaction to Windows 8 has grabbed HP Marketing by their dorsal fins.

I wonder if they'll allow me to downgrade the dv6 laptop I got last year... I just took it to 8.1 a couple weeks ago.

Most negative reactions to Windows 8 is based on a lack of familiarity, not an actual lack of capability or improvement. The number of under the hood improvements to Windows 8 more than makes up for the unfamiliar interface. Ignorance it bliss I guess.

I don't doubt that there are genuine improvements in the O/S -- but what makes perfect sense on a handheld device without a mouse or keyboard makes far less sense on a PC with mouse. My daughter has had a Windows 8 notebook for a month now, and still hates it.

Would it have been that hard to have a switch on Windows 8 to let you select the Xerox/Mac inspired interface or the cancerous cell phone interface?

Moose has obviously never seriously used W8. Too bad both those laptops have chiclet keyboards. The only thing worse than W8 on a laptop is a chiclet keyboard. (You can install linux over W8, but you're stuck with the keyboard).

There are laptops with real keyboards that run Windows 8. My daughter has one, an HP 2000 (I think).
