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.

yes like in LOST they had the key, they knew how to use it but...

"Is it somehow a late confession on the vista quality? "

How about lack of compatible applications? or unavailability of drivers? Not everything is Vista's fault.

Oh really? that old xp applications are unsupported and u cant even install xp/2000 drivers on it not vistas fault?
Vista aint a move like win2000/XP back then they moved from windows 98 to windows 2000 meaning win9x to Nt in other words people got sick of having the windows interface as a Gui for dos and needed something new.
The way people bloat programs today affects ram and cpu usage alot , multitasking becomes sluggish even on xp.
If bloatware is supposed to run on pc's i suggest pc's get better timing for that, why buy a new pc that is faster cpu-wise but behaves slower than winxp on 486dx2?
I just boycott vista , no need for it (hopefully ever)
