You are Right, these are funny.  But they didn't mention Windows Vista which is horrible but from I have heard Windows 8 is even worse.  We have a computer with Vista on and recently upgraded to Windows 7 - 32 bit and now that computer is great
We still have 2 other computers that run XP and will continue that way.  I won't get another computer till Windows 9 comes out if it is any good.

I hear that Windows 8.1 is an improvement. They have actually written some code to make it function with the keyboard and mouse. That was brilliant! You are right, Vista was a nightmare. The few Vista run machines I worked on were horror stories. 7 Is a very good platform, more stable than XP and with very few disadvantages. It is a little less transparent than XP when you want to get into places like the Device Manager, but once you figure out the steps it is pretty easy to navigate. The direction Microsoft is going is to give the user less and less access to the OS. I think 9 will be a further step in that direction where Microsoft controls your machine for you. The concept of annual dues paid to Microsoft for Office may well be extended into more and more of their software since fewer people are jumping on their upgrades when they are brought to market. Income stream is the goal, not satisfied customers.

Windows 8.1 is not much of an improvement at least for me. It still wouldn't even let me install most of my software even MS Office Pro 2003. Yes, I know there are newer versions of Office but I don't need them and I am not going to pay ridiculous amounts of $$ to buy the same thing I already own that has maybe different colors or something.
My brain is full. Can I go home now

Thumb, I am still using Microsoft Office 2003 Professional.  I really don't need any newer version, especially since I am retired.  I have Open Office which is free, installed on our laptops.  It is much like Microsoft Office has the spreadsheet, word processor etc and it opens Microsoft Office files and can save as a Microsoft Office file.

I also won't pay a yearly subscription fee for Microsoft Office software.  I feel that once I buy the software, I should not have to pay every year to use it.

On the Dell that has Win 8 I had to install Open Office which does work like MS Office, it's a great program for free.
