    • kstinman,
      I have no proof of this, mind you, but I suspect that the high muckettymucks at M$ are/were well aware that they’re going to take a real hit with Win8 (feedback from the betas told them, if nothing else) and that they consider it an acceptable cost in their long-range planning.

      And I further suspect that they do not care one lick about alienating “Power Users”, as they comprise less than 1% of the population.

      If you care to look at the bright side.. retailers are so desperate to move Win 8 units that they are discounting them so much, that you can buy a Win 7 install disc, and still come out ahead.
