I was recently in the market for a new desktop for the new year (read: last night).
I went to Bestbuy.com and the other "big brand" websites.....they ALL had Windows 8 preloaded onto the boxes. All of these companies just lost out on a $1000 sale because I was not sure if my SEO/other tools would work with Windows 8, coupled with the fact that as a small business owner, I don't want a "tablet experience", I want an operating system that can be used for business, and Windows 7 was more than up to par in that regard.
In my opinion, M$ is just trying to be like Apple.....and while the majority of Americans just use their tablets for internet browsing while on the couch, Windows 8 does not seem like a good investment from a business standpoint.
I had to buy a "return" desktop from the Dell Outlet, as they were the only ones that came with Windows 7.
