Default The End is Nigh for OEM XP

Computer makers have been told they'll no longer be able to get Windows XP OEM by the end of this year, despite strong ongoing demand for the OS. Analysts and computer makers are wondering if the move is premature given Vista's ongoing performance and compatibility issues. Dell recently said it would reintroduce XP on a range of machines due to customer demand but Microsoft will only allow this until the end of the year. (src: Slashdot)

Typical M$; Let's force our customers to use an under developed OS, while discontinuing a mature and highly successful OS.

I agree with you, Vista is no good until it can prove itself superior to XP, which it isn't right now;
