Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

I seriously can't see anyone going and buying a Mac for a feature they could get by upgrading Windows. Have you any examples of such a feature? Terminal services was mentioned as an example - how many people do you really think wouldn't know about different versions of Windows, and yet would see a similar feature on a Mac and think "Wow! This is what I need!"?

Anyone I know who doesn't know of different Windows versions is also hard pushed to understand the difference between a limited user and a root user - if they do switch to a Mac, it would be because it's shiny and silvery (and probably faster than their crapware-infested Windows system), not because of some technical feature they don't understand and never heard of...
