Yes. I'm currently playing KOTOR II on my Windows 8 system with widescreen enabled (1080p).

Because not everyone has the choice of OS or the technical knowledge to replace it when buying a new PC.

not exactly hard to say "hey i want ubuntu or osx or windows 7 on this not windows 8".... just because they pre install windows 8 doesnt mean you HAVE to have windows 8 theyll install w.e you want on a system when you buy it if you wanted you could get them to install ♥♥♥♥ing DOS

Unless you're buying from the manufacture then maybe, but otherwise most retails won't be able to do anything about the installed OS. If you buy a laptop directly from say HP then you might get another OS installed but only if *they* support it.

How do you know this? You're simply talking out of your ♥♥♥♥. Some newer laptop models do not have Windows 7 support simply because the manufacture never created drivers for it. Win 7 support is slowly being phased out in favour of Win 8 so it's only nature that newer laptop models will not support OS's below 8.

Find the Make and Model of your laptop and look it up on the manufacture website. If they indeed do have Windows 7 support then you might be able to make a case to get Win 7 installed. Otherwise you're out of luck unless you want to install your own copy of Win 7 and hunt across the internet for compatible 3rd party drivers.

TBH Windows 8 works just as well as 7 in terms of "gaming". I moved over to Windows 8.1 a while back so I could give my clients better support. An install of Classic shell (start button) and some tweaks and Win 8 works fine, I have yet to not be able to play a game I own.

I recently installed and played Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force with no issues whatsoever, and that game was made in 2000 ha xD

even though it's still totally off-topic: Windows 8\8.1 uses much less overhead and is much better optimized for gaming. the only problem i've had for launching any game is ones that depend on GFWL because it is not available.

and yes, KOTOR2 runs great @ 1080p on 8.1 with widescreen mod.
