Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

Then you should have clarified that at the outset.


No, I shouldn't have. I don't have to explicitly state my position on everything on the off chance someone may misinterpret what I'm saying. The onus in on you to make sure you have a thorough understanding before you get on your high horse, and hurl abuse at people.

Whether or not piracy can cause some upgrade issues on hackintosh machines does not make the issues I raised any more likely that they were caused by piracy.

There is no possible way that piracy could have contributed to a screen resolution issue AFTER INSTALLATION.

The is no possible way that piracy could have contributed to my WMC key taking 3 days, WHICH ISN'T EVEN AN EVENT TAKING PLACE ON MY PC.

There is no possible way that piracy could have contributed to me not being able to select the full upgrade cause I had WMC installed, since the installation routine actually had website links explaining this scenario! THIS IS CLEARLY BY DESIGN.

And so on.

You are simply wrong. Accept it.
