Microsoft: It's OK to Downgrade Vista to XP

Microsoft is doing the unthinkable: it's enabling Windows Vista haters to downgrade to Windows XP. Microsoft isn't actively promoting the offering, but has clearly conceded that some customers need to have XP. It's offering purchasers of business-orientated laptops with Vista Business or Ultimate editions installed the chance to get hold of a recovery disc containing the older OS.

The story is too old to be commented.

ehh, i dunno, Vista seemed so unnecessary to me when I tried it out on someone else's pc, didnt really have anything valuable to offer in comparison to XP
