Exciting new offer: get your new PC with Windows XP!

Holy flop Batman! The London Telegraph says that Microsoft Vista is continuing to remain such a colossal disappointment that PC makers and retailers are offering XP as an alternative.

It took took five years and $6bn (£3bn) to develop, but Microsoft’s Vista operating system, which was launched early this year, has been shunned by consumers – with computer manufacturers taking the bizarre step of offering downgrades to the old XP version of Windows.

Microsoft said: “We understand that our [original equipment manufacturer] partners are responding appropriately to a small minority of customers that have this specific request. But, as they have said before, the vast majority of consumers want the latest and greatest technology and that includes Windows Vista.”

The latest and… what?
