A couple things here. For me, I have a few Win7 licenses still. I'm not really seeing an issue with Win7 until maybe 4k gets here with TV's in the $1000 ~ $2000 range so I'm good for the usable life span of the echo as it is. I suppose in about 4 or 5 years I'll be looking to retool everything and at that time there will most likely be some alternative to the echo too.
Another thing about thinking Win8 is the off OS and Win9 or WinWhatever is the next big one... I just don't think it will matter. The installed base of anything going forward beyond Win7 is going to be muted by more people using tablets and the like.
