So now Dell sell XP on new machines. Vista sales are beyond poor.
Every other PC manufacturer did the same thing. Dell is the only one (HP might have also) to change because they sell a lot of basic PCs and the performance on those machines is poor with vista. I doubt vista sales are beyond poor and even if they are, the OS hasn't even been out for 6 months yet. I'm sure sales will surge soon enough, just wait until christmas time when people buy computers.

Some PC manufacturers are already re-issuing financials, due to poor sales of Vista

Which ones? This is news to me. Although I'm almost not surprised since some people don't like technological change and are still using win 98 or ME.

vista i good tho for one thing
with xp u could run it on pritty much any pc
but vista u need a good pc
so people rnt going to get ripped off any more with 266 mb of ram
and it will help make computer specs average higher
