I'm surprised it took them this long. People do NOT want the Metro interface on laptops/desktops but Microsoft refuses to listen. Even in Desktop mode, Windows 8 has some annoyances. Windows 7, by far, the best OS from Microsoft since Windows XP SP3. Nice to see PC makers pushing back – hopefully Microsoft allows Windows 7 licenses to be sold until Windows 9 comes out and proves itself.

In a blog post today HP explains its decision to bring back the ever-popular Windows 7 operating system. It even makes a point to mention that it offers Android now too, so it's trying to give the people what they want, whatever that may be. http://www.maximumpc.com/hp_explains_decision_bring_back_windows_7_pcs2014
