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.

How can you call the guy stupid ? Do you know him ?

He might have fallen for the same mistake Microsoft users have been making for years, that the next version will be the best thing since sliced bread, the coolest thing since air-conditioning etc etc

He was making the point to the local shill Jason.Knight that even legal Vista users have a bad time with Product Activation and that Microsoft treat ALL users are pirates. Even if they pay full whack each time.
