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.

Re: From Vista to XP

I wrote the following 4 months ago.

“I am upgrading from XP to Vista, I will keep XP (dual boot) as well because of my concerns of DRM and it how relates to hardware and software.
I want to see for myself, but if these issues are real I will fall back to XP. My hope is MS may make some changes in Vista. I used the Vista beta and liked it.
I also have a copy of UBUNTU as an alternative.
I’ve been a Windows user for over 15 years”.

Well after four months with Vista I ditched my dual boot, its Vista all the way.
