Dell offers Windows XP as consumer option

Dell has bowed to pressure from customers and dumped its Vista only policy for consumer PCs by adding Windows XP as an operating option on certain computers. Dell now offers Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional on two Dimension desktops and four Inspiron laptops.

Earlier this month, Dell decided to add Windows XP on systems sold to its small business customers. The new XP option is available only to U.S. customers.
