    win 7 home premium 64 bit


    I have a feeling I am going to be "flamed" but is it possible that MS will have Win 8 offered as an option along with the current Win 7 for desktop PCs. So perhaps you will be able to choose which of these you actually want included with your PC. Perhaps for general users they would prefer the Win 8 OS while folks that are interested in a more productive and traditional OS will continue to be able to specify 7.

    Win 8 pro X64


    Please remember this is an early build. Some things will change after we & many other people give feedback to MS. I remember when we tested early builds of win 7 things did get changed for the better after feedback.
