"Despite the extremely loudly publicised free "upgrade"? Fawn on, Gartner."
Yes, despite the upgrade offer. People, especially ordinary, non-Reg reading people, are quite likely to want to avoid the hassle of:
- performing an OS upgrade (with the risk of everything going pear-shaped if the automation fails),
- sorting out any drivers or bundled software that stop working under Win 10,
- having to use Win 8 whilst waiting for the upgrade.
Once you know Win 10 is on its way, it's easier to carry on with your existing kit a bit longer, let the vendors sort out the integration issues and buy something that does what you want when you buy it.
