    Have you not yet figured out that w8 and or blue will not be leaving w7 any where.

    Simple, no choice in blue will leave them right where they are now with w8. Wondering why the hell no one wants it.

    I'll have to have a look at that form, they do listen look what happened over the Office licence, they changed their minds about being able to move it to another computer.

    I've quit caring what MS does. I just vote with my pocketbook. I bought Win8 the $39.99 way (installed it on an old machine) because I like to play with it. Things will have to change a great deal before I will spend money on, for example, an OEM/Preinstalled Window machine, and I don't have any plans to build another Windows machine given the way the OS is going, etc. Please understand that I have experienced Win8 to be a workable OS. I just ignore metro almost completely.

    I don't like MS's attitudes about/approaches to a variety of things: releasing Win8 without things they at least should know that many, probably most, consumers would want and would be offended not to have; basing Win8 on rinky dink apps and a phone/tablet interface; pushing the MS version of the cloud; pushing the New Office's focus on the cloud; pushing the MS login; not offerring a full install retail version of Win8 (yes, I know the system builder software/personal use license approach apparently is a good alternative, but there are problems here too); apparently specifying, in effect, the way OEM's have to install Win8 with the attendant lack of a satisfactory clean reinstall procedure; etc.

    I posted these things and more on the link given. I disobeyed, predictably, and did not identify only the one thing that would make the most difference to me.

    I don't want to be forced to get used to something I'm not used to and I can already say it's not any better than what I was already using! I'm going back to Office 2003 and NEVER upgrading to a new Office version EVER! The way Microsoft is going, they might as well be bankrupt!

    If they are not careful, they might end up that way. It is tough out there. MS will not collapse overnight - but it is not impossible for them to die a slow death.

    MS need to understand why people are not buying win 8 and fix it. Fast

    I just don't like the Ribbon on Office, why is that so hard to understand?! Why isn't there an option to change it back to how it was before all that junk came in?!

    M$ is not listening to its customers on several issues and there are choices for users to change. If M$ continues to be deaf to its users it will go the way of many large companies and that is bankrupt.
