Dude, most of the people i know that was bad mouthing Vista when it came out never used it; the case with Win8 is different: most of the people i know love it and aren't bad mouthing the OS (one of my clients had deployed Win8 in ALL their machines).
Like I said, no one I know has said anything at all about Win8, I don't even know if anyone is using it. I guess I'm going to have to make some calls and do some research.

DavidM, perhaps you could try emailing them for the commercial if you haven't already? Required information for the contact form includes: First name
, Last name
, E-Mail address
, Phone number
, and ZIP code
In addition, they also have a phone number if you'd prefer to call them instead... 1888-COMPREN
: Wow, that was dumb of me... I guess you aren't really looking for the commercial... I should have read the first post again.
Don't worry, it happens to us all.

Uggghhh,why do you assume its automatically windows 8 hate? could it not be clever advertising on their part to reel in those people who have seen windows 8 metro in stores but don't know there is a desktop and get scared they cant run some of their older programs?
and never believe a trend based on internet blogs and forums. people online like to sit and bitch all day long. consumers are ultimately who choose what is a success of not by voting with their wallets. If you've been on the internet for a long time,you'd think for the past 2 decades Linux and mac own the desktop computer market and nobody uses windows, or that consoles suck and everyone plays their games on PC, or that EA,Activision,etc... suck balls and no one buys their games.
Let's see - EA DOES suck, but people still buy their games. PC's are BETTER than consoles. Linux will NEVER own the desktop - too many distros, Mac will NEVER own the desktop - too expensive. So the forums are right about half the time??? Yes, I get what you are saying, and no I don't base what I believe on anything but personal use / experience or people who's opinion I trust.
The only real encounter I had with Win8 and not being wanted was at Staples when I actually heard a person say, "If I can't get it with Windows 7, I don't want it", but I couldn't hear anything else, so I don't know why or if that was part of a longer sentence. Damn, them speedy check out lines!!
It could have been clever advertising, but I've never know CompRen ever being "clever", not to say they weren't, who knows. Maybe it was the way it was said or something, but I got the impression. "Hate 8, don't worry we got 7" might/could have been my personal bias.
