The decision reverses a policy begun in January that meant Windows Vista was the only operating system available on almost all new home machines.

Windows Vista for free?

it's not free. You still pay for it in the "bundle"...i expect buying a pc with XP is cheaper than buying one with Vista...by about £50

360 owners! you guys can throw back the broken 360s to MS... you never know MS might sit up and take notice. i am serious.

as for: "From the end of January 2008 PC makers will no longer be able to buy new licences for the operating system (XP)."

well.. how about mac, eh?

Well i already knew that Windows Vista would not sell that well, i expect that in a year's time, more people will buy a computer with Windows Vista. As of now i think me and many other people are very happy with Windows XP.
