    Thumbs down Windows 8 is a one way street for consumer PC users

    Hi Loungers,
    If you buy a Windows 8-powered HP consumer PC, or from any other PC vendor, you'll get no help from them if you decide you'd rather have Windows 7. And Linux? Forget about it!

    I think HP had already revised their policy in the FAQ on which that article was based even before the article was published:

    "Yes, customers can downgrade to Windows 7 and you will remain protected by HP product warranties."

    Windows 8 FAQ: Can I downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7?
