You may be right. I bought a Windows 8 machine and reinstalled Windows 7 on it. Win7 is a great operation system. Once again, MS is behind everyone else. Now I do like the preview of Office 2013, but why pay the massive upgrade fee if Office 2010 is great too?
As usual, this one is dead money like it has been for years. Oh, and the Surface...whoopie. Go with Google's tablet. They're operating system is the OS of the future.
