Dell charging more for Windows XP

Dell is offering Windows XP on certain home PCs again instead of Vista, but you’ll pay for it. It will cost you another $150 for the older operating system. The Inspiron 1525 laptop and 530 desktop allow you to configure the system with XP, apparently taking advantage of the downgrade loophole normally reserved for business users.

I guess that means that Dell is still getting backlash regarding Vista after all this time. Many consumers are still convinced that the OS is no good and they want a Windows version they can trust. What do you guys think? Do you prefer XP or Vista?

Some time ago, I finally switched to Vista myself after hearing about all of Vistas flaws. My experience? I have to say, I haven’t had any problems, surprisingly. It’s the smoothest OS I’ve used yet. So, I’m not sure what all the fuss is really about.
