Windows Microsoft is simplifying the processes via which its PC-maker partners will be able to provide 'downgrade' rights from Windows Vista to Windows XP for their customers. Microsoft will implement the first of the policy changes for its Gold Certified (top-tier) OEM partners within the next couple of weeks. The company will streamline downgrade-rights policies and procedures for the broader channel somewhat later, said John Ball, general manager of Microsoft's US Systems Group.

Ninety-nine percent of all Windows PCs sold at retail are being sold with Vista preloaded


But isn't that kind of like boasting that some dictator got 99% of the vote? Even those PCs being rolled back to XP come preloaded with Vista now.
