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.

I think Vista Ultimate is GREAT

6 months ago I did a fresh install of Vista Ultimate on my two HP Digital Entertainment Centers computers which I have hooked to my LCD in the bedroom and another one hooked up to my LCD in the living room.I use them to download movies from Amazon Unbox, watch VONGO, as well as other internet video and as HDTV TIVOs. They originally came with XP media center edition and always had problems and crashed a lot. After installing VISTA on both machines all the problems went away and they now run perfectly. No I do not work for Microsoft. I just think people should know that some of us are having a great experience with VISTA.
