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.

If MS were to have one price point and product for windows you may have just as many people complaining about paying for features they would never use.


That would indicate that the single sku was recognizably overpriced to begin with. A customizable install combined with reasonable price point would not result in these complaints.

But then, I also recognized that MS is a company and that "what the market will tolerate" pricing is not limited to MS. Yes they are a company in the business of manufacturing profits. No surprises there at all but that shouldn't stop us consumers from recognizing the size of the shaft they are offering.
