I'm grateful Windows 7 is still available.
Reviewed in the United States on April 23, 2013
I bought a new laptop, with Windows 8 installed. Hated Windows 8. (To repeat a Roger Ebert's movie review, 'I hated it. Hated it. Hated it.') For me Windows 8 was too hard to find the control panel, and with no 'back' button, too hard to get rid of screen sites.
So I bought Windows 7 and installed it instead. The Windows 7 CD uninstalls Windows 8 before installing Windows 7, so that segment of the process is good. A word of caution: If you choose the single installation, getting rid of Windows 8 completely, then after Windows 7 is installed, you won't have any drivers to connect to the Internet, so will have to re-install them. If you do the side-by-side intallation that keeps Windows8 along with Windows 7, then you might be ok regarding Internet access.
