5 out of 5 eggs Do It Before It's Too Late... 05/29/2012

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate

Pros:

Full retail Ultimate version includes all bells and whistles and flexibility when updating hardware; my version included Service Pack 1. Key Windows features available now may no longer be available once Windows 8 launches...

Cons:

none yet...and I have no plans to buy a touch screen monitor for my home desktop, not today, not tomorrow, not ever.

Other Thoughts:

As of this writing, Windows 8 has been released as a customer preview. The "Start" key has been eliminated; discarding of natively installed codecs required to run MedPlayer are planned so that playing DVD's, as well as access to MediaCenter, might be available only as a premium paid for add-on; and Microsoft has recently announced that the Aero interface will no longer be supported, claiming it looks, "cheesy..." Windows 7 has been widely adopted by businesses everywhere while Windows 8 upgrades are not likely to be. Microsoft seems to figure that if they degrade the desktop operating system experience then users will want to jump up, whip out their credit cards and buy tablets. I find these recent developments troubling and now appreciate Windows 7 all the more and am concerned that Microsoft may risk sacrificing the goodwill of desktop customers to pursue mobile operating system development too aggressively. This is unfortunate since they probably could've easily achieved both.
