They'll still be able to upgrade to Win 7 for a long time, I suspect. And, while that will actually probably help MSFT's bottom line more than Win 8 upgrades (because Win 7 costs more), it won't do wonders for the Win 8 adoption rate. And, if the adoption rate is low, that will be another Vista-like PR mess for the company.

The upshot of that is maybe (just maybe) it will finally get rid of Ballmer.


No way. He's lied about the adoption rate of every product for many years bow.

Don;t worry, Kinect will pull them through.
