Kicking Windows when it's down-uncharitable Sunday morning edition

As backstory, I own an HP printer/scanner/FAX/copy machine that sits atop my old 2-drawer file cabinet. I registered this device with HP. They took that as license to regularly send me (Weekly, Daily, Hourly) e-mails about their latest and greatest HP PCs. 


Such as this one.

I am not sure whether HP believes that Windows 8 is such a turkey that the promise of “preinstalled Windows 7” will pull in customers or whether they need to empty a warehouse of old merchandise. 

I wonder why HP doesn’t make a deal with Stardock to “pre-install” a couple of inexpensive Windows 8 utilities that fix Windows 8 most irritating problems. If you got stuck with a Windows 8 machine that lacks them, I recommend you go to Stardock and purchase for under $20 the utilities that will make your life easier to bear with Windows 8 or 8.1 I installed them myself at my own expense and they do the job.

Anyway, HP is having a sale  on HP PCs with Windows 7 already installed. Take advantage of it before 10/25/14, the last Saturday in October.
