I don't have a single friend or know of anyone who would go out to buy an operation system, i am talking about average people here, the whole "to a user the UI is the operating system".

My experience is opposite, as I know plenty of people like you describe that must have the "latest and greatest". They do buy operating systems.

Also just a poke, i am a salesman and i wouldn't do anything for a sale, there isn't honestly many that would.

No offense intended, though you must be one of the few and far between. Every sales person I know would do whatever it took to get that commission. Most retail sales people don't even have a clue about what they are selling, let alone be technical.
