- I have just bought a new (second-+hand) laptop with Microsoft Windows 7 operating system installed, but in all system dialogue screens it refers to it as Windows 6.1 . . . which I've never heard of !
- Why is this? Are they the same thing or not?
- Have I been sold a 'kosher' version of Windows 7 or not?
I thought Microsoft Windows evolution went successively from Windows 2000 on to Windows XP then to Windows Vista and then straight to Windows 7. Where did a version "6.1" ever come in?!
Any answers will be most greatly appreciated! The laptop is not working properly so this query forms the basis of a larger concern, and Currys/PC World are being EXTREMELY unhelpful !!!!
