i hate windows 8. it's the worst program ever- how do i get 7-- which i have never used.

i have a desktop at home and at work with xp, which i love.  this new laptop from hp is great, except for this crummy windows 8, which i hate.  it's difficult to use and has not gotten any easier with time.  i would like to switch back to xp, but can't due to microsoft.  i've never used windows 7, but it's got to be better that this pig.   help  (wish i'd purchased a macbook air)

If it is 8 Pro then there are downgrade rights associated with the supplied license, this does not apply to the basic Windows 8 license.


Microsoft however do not assist in that process in that you can't get the software from them you are expected to source it yourself but when you come to authenticating you would have to call the authentication service to get a key.


As for Windows 8...... no comment.
