Category Titles all ending in e.g. Windows 8?

HP Recommended

Why do many of the category titles on this forum end in "e.g. Windows 8"? I'm looking under hardware, but Windows 8 is of course software, I don't get it. Is there some meaning here I'm missing? Or is it what seems more likely that the creator of the categories wasn't good with communicating in English or Latin?

Hi mikeymagnesium,


The title "Windows 8" is a supportive topic for the category, so people know that they are welcome to post questions relating to Windows 8 in categories, even if they aren't specifically about that O.S.


Hope this helps answer your question.

the W8 is the new OS and its like addition and not relegated to W8 but there is help in other OSes as well and also W8 is very new and i just upgraded W8 and it is there to help people and also help others that do have questions about W8 whether its a new pc with W8 install or an upgraded OS from previous such as like i upgraded my pc which was originally vista and upgraded to W7 and i got a new 2t hard drive to put in my new W8 .. this is where you can post any question about the hp pc and also about what to do in that OS that you are using

In the past the forum had a dedicated section when a new OS was released_such as Windows 7. At the time there was a seperate forum section for support. The forum has grown by leaps & bounds and it has been needed to divide categories more and more. With all of the categories we now have it is a relief not to have yet another section to monitor-such as Win 8 dedicated.


I agree though, it is a bit confusing or maybe just not aesthetically pleasing, imo, to have Windows 8 listed in all the sections titles. Hoping to see it removed soon myself.;)
