Makes sense to put a desktop os onto a desktop pc/laptop. Maybe if enough of this happens it'll tell microsoft to leave tablet things on tablets.

Wouldnt say this is because of Win8 is a failure.  More so that companies need to do what it can to make money since PC sales are not what they are used to.  More options for consumers.

turns out, its just a marketing gimmick.

HP bringing back Windows 7 PCs? Not so fast...

This morning's tech news headlines are breathlessly reporting that HP is bringing back Windows 7 "by popular demand." The facts say otherwise: HP never stopped selling Windows 7 PCs, and it's actually selling fewer Windows 7 models today than it did last summer.

Last week I noticed that the bank terminals inside the bank were all XP. This week I noticed they all had aero on the title bars. I miss Aero it always looked sooooo nice!
