Microsoft will never do this. HP may lose customers over this.

However, I would've thought that MS would like to see all previous versions of Windows "destroyed", so that the majority of users are on the current version.
Presumably the OEMs have already paid for the W8 series licenses, so they would want to install them on machines to justify purchasing them in the first place.
If MS were to replace the unused W8 licenses with new W10 licenses, both sides would be happy.

I simply can not understand why anyone would want Windows 10 (period)? Other than Cortana (i already have Google Voice) and Edge (slow as it is), I see zero reasons to switch operating systems. It is only slightly faster (hardly undetectable), it removes functionality, the app store isn't as nice. DirectX 12 is really only nicer for gaming, but there won't be any games that use it for at least 3-5 years. So why switch?
HP is cuckoo cuckoo for evening suggesting it. They just need to build better machines that people can upgrade. Hell who wants an HP that use all proprietary parts.
I guess I am just getting to old to even bother with all the industry nonsense any more.
Mind you, I love their workstations. Those are nice.
