HP, which keeps releasing something new always, over this weekend, unveiled a brand new campaign. The company is now proudly shouting off the availability of systems that run Windows 7, especially for buyers who just wish to run away from Windows 8 asap.
Even after many comments, HP is not quitting Windows 8, but has found a way that is by presenting fresh Windows 7 PCs for sale. HP however did never stopped selling PCs based on Windows 7.
HP is doing what the TV advertisers of today do. Meanwhile, chief OEMs have never given up on the last-generation of Windows OS, until they were left with no other option. Consumers aimed machines might soon become hard to fetch and business configs are available for a long time after the launch of the new OS.
On the other hand, Microsoft usually does not stop selling the OEM licenses for its past operating systems for two years, after the new ones starts selling. So, you will be able to find computers with last batch of Windows 7 licenses until the end of 2014. And even after this, you will still be able to buy a Windows 8.1 Pro system that entails downgrade rights for Windows 7.
Another interesting fact is that what HP is claiming to do just now is something what Dell has already done. Similar thing happened with Dell, when users begged to bring the XP OS back, which Dell did soon after that. So, when do you think Dell stopped the sale of Windows XP? The answer is in 2010, it was only after a year of Windows 7 arrival.
If we believe in the statement that ‘history repeats itself’, then HP might flog computers with Windows 7, maybe till the year 2018. Or it might change, especially with the announcement of a new OS by Windows- ‘the Windows 9’, expected to get released later this year or early next year.
