Much like my dad has done, another Windows Vista customer has "upgraded" a Vista machine to Windows XP. So, I guess the PR Lady was somewhat correct? BTW – annoying that apple doesn’t let you link directly to one of its ads — its free advertising, mactards!
To be honest there is only one conclusion to be made; Microsoft has really outdone themselves in delivering a brand new operating system that really excels in all the areas where Vista was sub-optimal. From my testing, discussions with friends and colleagues, and a review of the material out there on the web there seems to be no doubt whatsoever that that upgrade to XP is well worth the money.
