That you would equate your rude dismissal of others passionate opinions here with my skepticism of a touchscreen OS on non-touchscreens is either laughable or dishonest. Are you saying I bullied Win8?
Almost every home PC comes with the standard OS, not Pro. Thus the way many/most consumers get their OS by buying a PC will cause them to be stuck with Win8 on non-touchscreens, until MS and the OEM's realize this is a debacle and allow an effective upgrade to the vastly better Desktop experience of Win7.
What's the alternative - a black market for a 3 year old wildly-popular OS?
I'm finished with your creepy ankle-biting. I'll come back here when Win7 actually loses popularity by consumer demand and not by being strangled in its crib before it's popularity has even peaked.
