RE: Way to go Microsoft, you have succeeded in alienating even more of your base.

Then why is Windows 8.1 gaining ground as per this article?

Win 8 is Win 7 with improvements that is designed for TOUCH technology. As more tablets come into the market as well as touch tech PCs and laptops win 8 will make further gains. MS did the same thing with Vista which was made for processors that were not yet in widespread use when the OS was released. As a power user at home and at work, I never had any issues with Vista, Win 7 and so far none with Win 8.

Where else do the old, but satisfied and content XP users go?

While it's in Microsoft's interest to help them make the jump, the easiest forced "solution" to this Microsoft generated problem is to buy Win 8 or 8.1.

Or do they try the older Win 7 Pro? Or bail on Microsoft altogether?

I'd like to see if/how those numbers are changing before calling Win 8 a success. Otherwise, it's sorta like voting republican these days because there's no place else to go.

No choice, if you need a computer, that is what you get.

I have shut down Metro on my computer but the stupid side menu pops up when I move the mouse. Drives me crazy.
