    Dell to continue offering Windows 7 after launch of Windows 8


    Dell will continue offering Windows 7 even after the release of Windows 8 at the end of October, the company said.

    The Windows 7 OS, which reached PCs in October of 2009, will be offered as an option to commercial and gaming customers, said Alison Gardner, director at Dell. The company will offer Windows 7 as long as it is allowed to, Gardner said.

    “We’re still moving our business customers from [Windows] XP to Windows 7, Gardner said.

    Hi there
    Not surprised -- shades of 'XP' here when VISTA didn't yield a satisfactory performance with hardware available at that time. Users were allowed to "downgrade" to XP for quite a while after Vista launch and even an XP sp3 was released in spite of Ms insisting thet SP2 would be the final service pack for XP.

    Cheers
