I think you can often opt for Windows 7 to be installed, but I was looking on the Dell site the other night, and they all seem to come with 8.

I would too, if I were to buy a new machine - or, I'd get one with no OS installed, and use the copy of Windows 7 I bought when it came out, and which is still sealed in it's box.

Windows 95 was good but then again so was my Amiga 1200 with Workbench.   :devil:  For Gods sake try it you might find that you prefer the faster loading, running and shut down. I can now use Works 9 which did not like running on W7 but is fine on W8.  :P

I loved my old van but then I bought a Peuogot Partner, I did not want to change but I am now glad I did, sometimes you have to keep up or you are in danger of falling behind. If folk would try W8 for a while and stop believing everything they read they might be surprised.  ::)
