The normal everyday user gets a pc which never comes preloaded with anything other than windows OS...Most people are fine with that as well since they only use the pc for email and surfing the web....I am talking about an OS that comes out and there is an option to have it preloaded on a pc that you could buy at an everyday retail store....something that the mainstream user would use and like better than windows and actually give MS a reason to change things but because the vast majority of pc users don't change OS's unless they upgrade.... So until a PC comes preloaded with something else most everyday users don't have a clue that what they are using is CRAP....

Yeah - I Reckon that is the WORST Idea ever!


Honestly,Either i will be 'getting' Windows 7 Ultimate OR Sticking with XP because i just couldnt be bothered with shelling out $500 for an OS that will probably be hard to find (So called 'limited availibillity') and is bloated with stuff you dont need.Althought i couldnt be bothered spending $400 on pro because who knows what other features its missing? And there is no way i would get anything lower (Knowing them they didnt include Direct X ).

This also makes it hard for people repairing computers WITH Windows 7 (When it comes out) because of the different things that come with the different versions!


Damit,Honeslty i think this is why im converting my laptop to an all linux PC

I had hoped Microsoft would have stopped producing all these versions. Why couldn't they just sell one operating system to consumers like Apple does with their operating system?

I’m pretty sure it’s for developing nations.

Yeah if they give vista COA Holders a Discount or even a free update that would be great.

I honestly dont have problem with it. It's not that hard to choose which version i want. I don't see the big deal.

because then we would have to listen to people whining that it is bloated.

Netbooks wouldn't have an operating system that's stripped down to that point.

No one bitched when Microsoft released Windows 98 and Windows NT, or Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional.

I know I'm not buying that OS. I'd rather buy Bill Gates' shit over any of those versions. There's no way in hell I'm shelling out $320 for an OS. Never. I'll stay with XP. Maybe a switch to Vista later on. Vista or Ubuntu. Microsoft is trying to make way too much money. I hope this release tanks, worse than Vista, then maybe they'll learn something.
