and somehow the ones with the blinders off are the people who obstinately refuse to consider an upgrade, because...?

Don't know about anyone else, but because Win7 works great. Fast, stable, and not bad to look at. And I came from Vista x64, an OS with serious problems and compatibility issues.

Really, though, it boils down to Win8 being completely unnecessary. I don't need or want to change my OS every two years.

I'm surprised so many people here are jumping on the "it's a failure!" bandwagon for that exact reason. Ok, I understand why people say "its functionality is a failure," but sales?

How many of you upgraded OSs frequently? Most people do it when they buy/build a new system. The length of time between new systems has gone up significantly, lowering sales, and new products have also supplemented the need for new systems, further lowering sales.

Even if Windows 8 was awesome, how many of you would have rushed out to purchase it? I wouldn't have. I've never rushed out for an OS. I built a new PC for 95 and a new PC for XP, but more or less needed one at that point, anyway.

When it's time to build a new PC I'll go with Windows 8, or probably by then Windows 9 or Windows 8 2014 or whatever the hell they choose to call it.
