    HP sticks thumb in Microsoft's eye, discounts consumer Windows 7 PCs

    When sales are hard to come by, every little bit helps, says analyst

    Computerworld - Hewlett-Packard today launched a new online promotion that discounts several consumer PCs by $150 when equipped with Windows 7, saying the four-year-old OS is "back by popular demand."

    "The reality is that there are a lot of people who still want Windows 7," said Bob O'Donnell, chief analyst at Technalysis Research, in a Monday interview. "This is a twist, though, and may appeal to those who said, 'I do want a new PC, but I thought I couldn't get Windows 7.'"

    I read this and other articles about this. I think that HP understands that its customers don't want Windows 8. Microsoft apparently did not argue-said have at it. What with this and other stories, like even MSFT calling Windows 8 the New Vista, I really look forward to Windows 9. And I will stick with Windows 7 in the meantime.
