prostoalex writes "About 10,700 of Dell customers asked for the company to continue selling new PCs with pre-installed Windows XP (as opposed to Microsoft Windows Vista installs), and Dell is giving customers an option to have XP installed in newly purchased PCs: "Michael Gartenberg, vice president and research director of JupiterResearch, said many consumers continue to buy XP because it is familiar, it works with their existing hardware and programs, and is overall "good enough," even though Vista boasts a prettier user interface and stronger security.""
