    They could save so much money by just providing digital download versions of everything and just advertising it in stores...seriously who is going to go to a MS store (much less brick and mortar which are going away fast) who doesn't already know what they are looking for.

    It would be nice to have someone else go through my operating system, manually looking up and disabling my unnecessary services.

    I hope they really give apple a run for their money.

    75 lbs? man, that's a heavy OS.../joke.
    but hey, at least they're employing some people, as opposed to laying them off; anything helps..

    True true. But didn't they just lay off a bunch of people because their "profits" were not as high as they expected. Could be wrong but I think that is what I read.
