While it'd be nice to think that they'd pull their heads out of their nether regions, this is just speculation based on what could happen now that wazzizface was pushed out the door. Probably has just as much chance of being true as the pre-turf speculation that they'd see the light due to constant complaints, and zero desktop adoption by business.

On another note.... Costco is now completely win8 on their displayed laptops (haven't checked their website yet) and staples has all of their win7 laptops relegated way down the end of the line at the back of the bus. As I stated earlier, FS didn't have any lower end offerings in win7 flavour.

I suspect all of my laptop purchases from here on in will end up online at dell where I can pick and chose the OS.
