Dell to offer Windows XP beyond June 30 cutoff

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

A quote from that article, Animal

[Dell will take advantage of a licensing option in Vista Business and Vista Ultimate that lets PC makers provide XP under the Vista license, which Microsoft calls a "downgrade" license. (Enterprises with site licenses have these same rights with any version of Vista.) In essence, the user is buying a Vista license that it can apply to XP, and Microsoft can still claim a Vista sale.]

Dear "Save XP" petition participant --


<img alt="SaveXP.com" style="margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px; float: right;" border="0" height="182" width="243">Thank you for signing our "Save XP" petition. You're getting this message because you told us you wanted updates on new developments in the "Save XP" campaign. Here's what's happening:

Close to 200,000 people have signed the petition since January 14. However, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer thinks we're not serious about the Save XP movement, nor does he seem to take the people who signed it seriously. That's where you come in. Help us meet our goal of 300,000 unique petition signatures by June 2008. Please ask your friends, family and colleagues to join the movement by signing up at www.savexp.com.

And show Mr. Ballmer that there's a face behind each email address. How about uploading your own Save XP video plea to the InfoWorld section of FaceBook? You can also upload them directly to the InfoWorld site using our BrightCove player form. We'll show off the funniest, most creative appeals to save XP on our "Save XP" video home page.
