This is just like when Turkey blocked YouTube after complaints that some videos insulted Ataturk. It took two whole days before they had to back down.

Submission + - Trials of Reverting a Notebook from Vista to XP

penguin_dance writes: "As if you need another reason to hate Microsoft or Vista, here's another one: They made it virtually impossible to delete Vista and install Windows XP. But part of the blame needs to go to the hardware manufacturers who have apparently removed their XP drivers.

Obviously it would be better to buy the laptop with Windows XP (or even better, nothing, installed.) Which begs the question, "Where's the best place to buy an up-to-date laptop without Vista?" (not a mac, please.)"
