Default Re: Which version of XP runs best? - 02-05-2009, 01:39 AM

dkrnic, youve hit the nail on the head...however it isnt just Dell. And no doubt theyve only done it to ensure cheaper licence costs from MS, that they can then pass on to us. The fact the OS we got waas unuseable was clearly an oversight, as they are now offering XP as an option on purchase.

Dont get me wrong not sticking up for the vendors, but I can see what may have happened and yes it sucks you have to buy a second OS licence. With any other software, a newer licence normally entitles you to a degree of backwards compatibility (i.e we run old apps here due to hardware constraints, but we pay for current licencing and are still legal). OS licences seem to operate to a different set of rules...or maybe thats just MS...
