HP Goes Retro With Their Windows Offerings January 21, 2014Posted by geoff in News.
Delighted to see that HP has acknowledged the large market segment that loathes Windows 8:
Windows 7 is “back by popular demand”, according to HP, the world’s second-largest maker of PCs, which has begun offering the previous generation of Microsoft’s operating system to US customers via email flyers.
Against a backdrop where consumers, who buy about half of all PCs, have been equivocal about Windows 8’s tiled interface since its launch in October 2012, HP has begun trying to boost sales by offering people what they are more familiar with: the desktop interface of Windows 7.
Hey Microsoft! Your “blend all user interfaces into one crappy package” strategy? It is teh suck.
