HP & Win 7

Sun Jan 19, 2014 9:55 am

I just got an advertisement from HP for new PCs with Win 7 rather than
any version of Win 8.

There must have been a LOT of people complaining for this to happen.

I did pick up a 2nd disk of the Win 7 Home Premium Family Pack since I
had used all 3 on the first already.

Thay's all it is -an advertisement.

The way it should work is the user picks what hardware they want and the OS
they want instead of having to take an OS they don't want to get the HW they
want.
