This just in from ZDnet by Ed Bott, that MSFT will cease to allow new machines to be sold with Win7 on them. I've not read the article yet, but it should be self explanatory. So do your shopping now. That's what I'm going to do. Now.
Ironically, I just now uploaded three videos showing what business laptops are being sold by Lenovo, Dell, HP to prove that they aren't selling Win10 machines. They are using Win8.1 licenses' downgrade rights to sell Win7. The videos are updates on the ones I did back at the beginning of September, to see if the September results were still valid.
You can see the videos here (Dell), here (HP) and here (Lenovo, but the video shows the Win7 machines sold out); vids were made 10/26 and at least Dell has radically changed its website interface now. The videos are boring, though. Better to just go to the websites, instead.
The Dell machines shown in the video are mostly gone, now; or, the website redesign makes it look that way. The machines shown in the video are now (right now, this minute) showing as only available preconfigured in Win7Pro 64 or Win10. When just now I did a mock purchase, those were the only options: not, Win8. You'll find more Win8 machines available on HP.
Thank you for your time. So much of my life would be so much worse, were it not for BC. I hope to 'give back'. Thank you again.
