interesting... i wonder ... how does one get the license keys to downgrade from Vista to XP?
My father bought a laptop without consulting me.. He asked me to help him once.. I HATED VISTA...
and now that he has had a chance to use it.. HE HATES IT AS WELL
You've probably gotten several of these emails already, but I am surprized that you didn't already know that Vista Business and Vista Ultimate come with the "rights" to downgrade to XP Pro.
It's all contained within the Vista EULA from MS, and has nothing to do with Lenovo.
XP had the same rights (to run Windows 2000) so downgrade rights is not a new thing. What is new with Vista is that MS is allowing the OEM manufacturers to supply the XP downgrade media. (previously you had to come up with the downgrade media yourself)
Lenovo is not charging a license fee for the downgrade CD's but they are charging for the media, shipping and cost of the support call. (so like 45$ bucks in the US).
Like anyone will care about this now that Halo 3 is out in just a few hours and we will all fighting to save the earth.
