doing ANYTHING to avoid vista!

  1. It seems that people prefer to pay top dollar than be forced to use the
    worst OS ever made: Vista
    Poor Vista Fanboys (like Frank)... your bubble is being burst...,_OEMs_Turn_To_Vista_Downgrade_Rights

    In yet another sign of the market's resistance to Windows Vista, Dell
    (NSDQ:Dell) Computer, Hewlett Packard (NYSE:HPQ), and Sony on Wednesday all
    confirmed plans to exercise the downgrade rights Microsoft offers with OEM
    versions of Windows Vista Business and Vista Ultimate in order to continue
    offering XP-equipped PCs to their customers.

    Downgrade rights, which Microsoft also offers to volume licensing customers,
    give users the ability to roll back to the previous version of the product
    they're using. Downgrade rights have existed since 2001 for Windows, but
    many Microsoft partners say they've been seeing a recent uptick in the
    number of customers exercising downgrade rights to roll Vista back to XP

    HP will sell PCs pre-installed with XP Professional on its business
    desktops, notebooks and workstations until July 30, 2009, a spokesperson for
    the Palo Alto, Calif.-based vendor said in an email to ChannelWeb.

    "After June 30, 2008, if a customer already has the XP image and license, HP
    also can also install that customer's image on their Vista Business systems
    through our HP PC Customization Services," the spokesperson said.

  2. Only those who are mislead my messages like yours.

    You are young or you have a short memory. XP had at least as many roll
    out problems.

  4. No it didn't. That seems to be what a lot of clueless people say. That
    might have been the case for less experienced home users, upgrading from
    Win9x, but I saw it relatively quickly adopted by universities and companies
    that would have been using Win2000 or NT4 beforehand. XP was not that
    different from Win2000.
