upgraded my old laptop (originally windows xp pre-installed) from window 7 and I think windows 8 runs better on my old laptop than it ran windows 7.

I think if it could count the total number of people using Windows 8, the number would double xD hint:piratebay

hehe for people like U there's something like this: stardock.com' start8

Don't be limited. At some point you'll be accessing a Win8 computer and you'll be frustrated. LEARN how to master win 8 the same you master Win 7 and problems are gone!

I doubt this report until it comes from a neutral source.

However, there's a huge difference in price between those two releases.

I updated to windows 8 on my pc but there are some programs from windows 7 that run very laggy and unresponsive since I think it's not yet compatible that's what made me go back w7

Windows 8 is the best windows version so far, many many bugs have been fixed, it is a lot faster than Windows 7. Even windows xp has tons of bugs

XP is notorious for bugs and security holes. Still more secure than mac OS X though, from what I've read.

Thank God Ms sold 40mil.I was beginning to think the retards complaining about windows 8 was going to slow down sales. Ms did a good job with win8.only very dump retards will complain about it. Its lively,its fast and its clean. It gives you a new way to interact with the desktop OS. I don't know what more you retards want?

as little as $15 actually, if you bought your Windows 7 PC in June 2012 or later.

They've sold one to me so far, and soon it will be 2.
