Thread Name: windows 8 microsoft admit failure
Subject: RE: windows 8 microsoft admit failure
John in Kansas had trouble running "Microsoft Streets & Trips" in Windows 7. When I switched from Vista to Windows 7, I also was switching from a 32-bit to a 64-bit operating system. I found that some peripherals, particularly scanners and printers, and many software programs would not work because my computer had a 64-bit system. They probably would have worked with 32-bit Windows 7, but 32-bit operating systems have become rare with the advent of Win 7.
So far, I have had no problem in Win 8 64, with anything I had that worked with Win 7 64.
