Dell will continue selling Windows 7

Not sure about this eight lark

Tinman Michael Dell has said that he will continue to flog Windows 7 machines after Windows 8 hits the shops. The move is being seen as a note of caution, because some analysts are not sure how successful Windows 8 will be.

Windows 7 is seen as a good stable operating system, particularly after the disaster that was Vista. Windows 7, which reached PCs in October of 2009, will be offered as an option to commercial and gaming customers. In fact Dell has said that it will offer Windows 7 as long as it is allowed to.

Apparently Dell is still moving business customers from XP to Windows 7. The company is continuing to recommend that customers migrate to Windows 7 and that those who need touch capabilities on PCs adopt Windows 8, a Dell spokesman said.

Both Windows 7 and 8 will be offered as options on the Latitude, OptiPlex and Precision brands, the company said.
