It is now March 2013 and Windows 8 has been out for some while. After being scammed online about 1 year ago with an VL for XP on an older PC which, of course, eventually failed, I am now very cautious. I simply want to buy _DIRECTLY_ from Microsoft, since I now trust no other source, a Windows 7 OS. (Not Windows 8, which I know is great since I have it on another PC, as the targetted not support it.) Looking on the Microsoft site I did not find a way of buying Win7 from them directly. My question is: Can I still buy Windows 7 _from_ Microsoft, preferably a DVD version, and if so, how? Thanks in advance if someone in MS can help.
