It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what's been going on here. The writing style and grammar of the person(s) in question even changes when M$ is being promoted.

Unfortunately all new Windows laptops have Windows 8. If anything, people should wait for Windows 9 to be released with the return of the traditional desktop if they feel they need a new computer. No one should have to deal with a dysfunctional GUI just because they need a new computer. Get a Dell with Windows 7 and then upgrade to Windows 9 when that gets released.  

Now THIS POST is the best advice given in this whole thread!

Win 8 has a desktop . . .

The propensity of the anti-Windows crowd to emit shrill cries of, "Microsoft Shill!!!" when presented with a dead end to their mostly irrelevant and often ludicrous claims is similar to the well known Godwin's Law progression.

W8JX,
I have come to the conclusion that you and I will never see eye to eye on this subject.  You are a computer ENTHUSIAST while I am a computer USER. 
To you, it is incomprehensible that anyone wouldn't want to get the most out of their computer and, I'm sure, you go to great lengths to try to do so (and probably pretty successful at it).
To me, on the other hand, any old computer will do as long as it does the rather mundane tasks I ask of it.
I do understand your interest, however.  For 40+ years I built and raced hot boats and to say that compulsion was alive and well would have been an understatement.  Now days that competitive spirit is pretty much dead and has been replaced with an "as long as it works" attitude.
I still like nice things but, along with retirement and a fixed income, come much more modest goals.  It serves no purpose to lust over things that I know don't make sense for me to aspire to.  That only makes a person miserable.
So...I'll try to get as much additional mileage out of my XP machines as I possibly can and, I'm sure, you'll continue to be repulsed by such a disgusting attitude.   But, 50 years ago, I'll bet I could have built a boat that would have blown the drawers off your car!
