I have been putting off replacing my “old” desktop computer because I didn’t want to buy a new one with Vista on it. I have heard so much negative feedback about Vista, that I would like Microsoft to iron some more of the bugs out before I start using it. I have found two on-line sources for PCs without Vista. There are probably more. Dell has some small business desktops that come with a Vista downgrade to XP. You get XP installed and the ability to upgrade to Vista when you are ready. The other is AVADirect which will build you a desktop with XP.
