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.

It would be funny, IF Windows wasn't preloaded on damn near ever PC sold. Same song, different verse.

Make's zero difference if it's XP or Vista. The same company is still kicking the living shit out of everyone else.
