Responding to customer demand Dell has restarted selling new PCs with Windows XP installed on them.
The decision reverses a policy begun in January that meant Windows Vista was the only operating system available on almost all new home machines.
The change came after Dell’s feedback site was swamped with calls for the return of the venerable software.
As for Vista, we have it on a conference room machine here in the office. I’m sure there’s a lot more to it, but my first impressions are:
- It looks very, very pretty.
- It doesn’t seem to do much more than XP, except ask me every 10 seconds if I want it to do something.
