Windows

HP really wants people to buy a Windows 7 PC instead of a Windows 8 machine. The PC maker has been emailing customers over the weekend noting that "Windows 7 is back." A new promotion, designed to entice people to select Windows 7 over Windows 8 with $150 of "savings," has launched on HP's website with a "back by popular demand" slogan. The move is clearly designed to position Windows 7 over Microsoft's touch-centric Windows 8 operating system.

Windows 8.x is just fine. Nothing's wrong with it. It's all the users' fault. Windows 8.x is just fine. Nothing's wrong with it. It's all the users' fault. Windows 8.x is just fine. Nothing's wrong with it. It's all the users' fault. Windows 8.x is just fine. Nothing's wrong with it. It's all the users' fault.

Windows does well over other OS's for a few major reasons. 1. Obviously the largest software library, 2. Best driver support, 3. Great development tools and technologies baked in like Visual Studio and .NET framework, 4. Stable and upgrades don't break your setup for the most part...and if they do you can roll them back, 5. NT kernel is still amazing, 6. Solid compatibility with old software, 6. (arguably) SQL Server rocks!, 7. Even Windows 8 with it's polarizing interface blows the doors off of the software and desktop managers that come with desktop Linux. Comparing any distribution to even Windows XP is not even a contest and XP is dead man. UNIX is old technology.
