Default Vista SP1 Will Install XP ???

Is this a hoax? If it's the truth, I'm very surprised.
Although, it actually makes me think about buying Vista now! LOL

Think anyone who paid to upgrade from XP to Vista will be upset?

No, it's a JOKE. Not bad, either.

Not bad? It's damn well awesome. Too good to be true! I don't want no modernized version of ME.

I'm actually hearing some pretty decent reports on the new nVidia WHQL drivers and Vista 64. I might have to pick up Vista 64 before I do the installation on my new machine.

PC gamer wrote an excellent article in this month's magazine about how games are finally getting on the DX10 wagon for more than a few particle effects.

Well, it was supposed to be a joke.

Now it's even funnier.

I haven't figured out why switch to Vista. XP is perfect for my needs. But interested in Linux at some future date. Vista is a dog.

It was a good joke, and I'm very amused that people didn't get it, especially with the threat to go back to ME if they don't like it! ^o^

Posted a link to the article on my guild forums and was promptly met with a wave of Vista fanbois saying that people just need to stop picking on it. None of them got the joke or thought it funny.

Per my link in post #6, it's not exactly a joke anymore. M$ is actually offering XP downgrades to many of it's OEMs due to unhappy customers. It's not SP1, but it is completely hilarious!

Ugh, I wouldn't want to think about all the problems upgrading and downgrading could cause for a M$ system.
