Mary Jo Foley:

The extension of the Windows 7 Pro preload-cutoff date is not related to the looming end-of-support date for Windows XP, said Shad Larsen, senior business program manager, Windows business planning team. Nor is it because of business-customer reticence to adopt Windows 8, Larsen insisted.

Instead, Larsen said that because Windows 7 remains the largest part of Microsoft’s installed base and is still in the midst of being deployed by business customers, Microsoft wants to make it easy and possible for businesses to continue to obtain it.

Those logic gap in those two paragraphs is hilarious. Microsoft is not extending the life of Windows 7 because of customer reticence to adopt Windows 8 — but rather it’s because Windows 7 remains the largest part of the business install base. But wait. Why is that? Because no one in their right mind wants a business machine that runs Windows 8!

Nothing to see here. Nothing at all.
