    Windows 8 is pretty much going to be around this price during launch, best to wait.

    Vista - euch

    This sort of belief is fascinating, because it's like pure, unadulterated confirmation bias. I suspect it's because the ego boost of believing that one is privy to secret knowledge and thus cleverer than everyone else is so strong & so fundamental to a believer's self-image of being more insightful than other people. (This also explains the aggression when these beliefs are challenged.)

    And what's really cool is that absolutely anything counts as evidence in favour of the theory. Video captured American Airlines Flight 11 impacting the North Tower? That's 'suspiciously convenient' No video of the hijackers of Flight 175 in the departure lounge at Boston Logan Airport? That's suspicious too! As Karl Popper pointed out, if a belief cannot be falsified, if all evidence can be explained by it, then it's unscientific and a belief system pretending to be a theory.

    Observe also how even when facts conflict with reality, the true believer is not deterred. As it happens, Denver International Airport is not officially called 'New World Airport'. It's officially called 'Denver International Airport'. There are three possible responses by believers to being caught out getting the facts wrong.
    (1) Ignore it. Hope that no one noticed.
    (2) Change the subject. Shift the focus onto another theory or another piece of 'evidence', thus putting the burden of proof on the other person. When the next claim gets disproved, move onto another one. When the skeptic tires of this endless charade, declare victory because they 'couldn't answer your last point'. Sometimes this process is sped up with the 'wall of text' technique, where dozens of paragraphs are copied and pasted all at once.
    (3) Start critically examining their own beliefs, applying Occam's Razor. Sadly, this never ever happens.


    Excellent post, I would definitely compare conspiracy theorists to religious fundamentalists. . . Sadly, this is why we are wasting our time and effort, no amount of evidence will shake them from their beliefs. They think they are in a "club" of enlightened ones, hence why they call rational thinking people "sheeple".

    You have to wonder why, this far into the release cycle, with 8 on the horizon, why they don't just make 7 £40-50 to everyone.

    If it was a reasonable price, as opposed to about half the price of a PC, I think there'd be far less piracy of it.

    Still, is a fine deal if you're a student :)

    I'd much rather pay for 7 then 8. Got mine when 7 was released for £30 to education (staff and students).

    W8 is going to be a disaster. W7 is a good solid operating system.

    Did you never come across Windows 2000 then ?

    Correct order should be:
    Windows 95
    Windows NT4
    Windows 98
    Windows 2000
    Windows ME
    Windows XP
    Windows Vista
    Windows 7
    Windows 8

    Windows 2000 was a very stable operating system, more user friendly than NT4 but with some of the nice features in Windows 98.

    Because they want to encourage uptake of Windows 8 - reducing Windows 7 would just make it harder.

    Says you cant upgrade a current version of windows 7 - only do a clean install over it.... is that right ?
    amanda65
    Great price for Windows 7 Pro at £39.95, I see they have Ultimate reduced to £59.95 too - thanks for sharing this! HEAT!!!

    They seem to be offering Office 2010 at a lower price now, finally available at a price I am willing to pay :)X)

    It may be possible to clean install but illegal without a previous windows operating system.

    Not illegal, breach of license agreement.

    NT4 and 2000 were business versions released in parallel with the consumer versions.

    XP was the first to combine consumer/business although as different variants

    Wow! Thanks OP. I thought these wouldn't come back and i need to get a couple, one for a gaming build and another to install on the iMac :)

    Guys, Windows 8 will be this price (provided they do a straight 1-1 dollar to pound conversion like usual). Even if you don't like Metro there are other performance improvements in Windows 8. If it annoys you that much, everyone that is installing this is more than capable of installing Start8 or something to that effect, and I'm sure at some point Microsoft will back off and create a solution.
