Responding to customer demand Dell has restarted selling new PCs with Windows XP installed on them.
The decision reverses a policy begun in January that meant Windows Vista was the only operating system available on almost all new home machines.
The change came after Dell's feedback site was swamped with calls for the return of the venerable software.
Now customers can opt for the Home or Professional version of XP on six models of Dell machines.
Tis a quality decision by Dell, no way would I want to jump to Vista yet if I were buying a new PC.
A lot of Dell's customer base will be semi-professionals, who will realise the benefit's of using the more mature and stable Windows XP rather the new and fairly untested Windows Vista.
Its not only a good move by Dell, but it just goes to show that consumer power can sometimes influence major corporate decisions.
