NEC offers official Vista downgrade product


Adding injury to insult, then pouring salt in the wound, and finally kicking mud in Microsoft's eye, NEC has launched an official Vista downgrade product, FlexLoad. The company debuted a two-DVD package on Tuesday priced at an affordable £7, which is meant to help (mainly business) customers create an XP partition that they can use to boot from. Says David Newbould, NEC UK's product marketing manager, "We do have some customers who are very happy with XP and see [no need] to move to Vista at the moment." Of course, we're pretty sure that when he said "some" he actually meant "lots." Another nasty burn for the folks in Redmond -- though those 100 million units sold can probably buy a lot of kleenex.
