Dell Has Heard Your Cries

Does anybody besides Bill Gates like Vista? Apparantly, enough Dell customers don't and the folks in Round Rock, Texas get it! The new Windows Vista OS went primetime back in January.

Many unhappy campers later, Dell announced last night that they will bring back the Windows XP OS and give customers a choice between the two.

Thank you.

BlackI(out)berry! What happened this week?
