Windows With Windows 8 right around the corner, the usual game of reading the end-user license agreements and spotting the different versions is in full swing. Usually, this is a game of ridicule as Microsoft comes up with ever more convoluted version schemes and EULA terms. This time around, though, the company seems to be taking steps to make things easier, as Ed Bott reports.

Windows 7 instead

Actually, for a business I recently specifically bought retail versions of Windows 7 instead of OEM. So that Windows 7 can more easily be transfered to newer/better hardware when the old hardware breaks. So they can still use it many years from now.

I see no reason for them to run Windows 8 any time soon or in the long run for that matter.
