During every latest Windows release, Microsoft says its OEM partners that don’t need to clutter the latest version of the company’s desktop operating system with crapware. For the most part, the OEM partners do not harken the Microsoft’s request. Ed Bott at ZDNet has reported that online retailer HSN has already started to sell the Windows 8 PCs. During our reporting, we have not found the selling page of HSN upon the queries from Microsoft.

The online retailer offered Acer and Gateway branded Windows 8 PCs. It is impossible to get the Windows 8 OS before 26 October, but Acer and Gateway PCs were ready for immediate shipping. We have found the page via Google cache. According to the cash pages, the cost of Acer 23-inch LCD, Windows 8 all-in-one desktop PC is $999.95 and Gateway 23-inch Touchscreen LCD, Windows 8 all-in-one desktop PC is $1,199.95.

ZDNET has updated its post. Microsoft’s VP US OEM and Acer’s VP, US Consumer have sent an email to ZDNET. According to the email, Peter Han, Microsoft’s VP, US OEM said, “We are looking forward to Windows 8 General Availability on October 26, when customers can take delivery of Windows 8 PCs at retail for the first time.”

Scott Ledterman, Acer’s VP, US Consumer said, “We are excited to support Windows 8 with great Acer and Gateway offerings starting on October 26, but this HSN offer came prematurely and we’ve requested its immediate removal.”

A Microsoft spokesperson said that Microsoft and major online retailers are taking preparation to sell the Windows 8 devices but it will not be available before October 26. After seeing the HSN promotion, the company contacted to HSN and said to discontinue the on-air and online offer till October 26.
