      The report is a little hard to decipher -- but basically it affects people who were tempted to accept the offfer of an eventual upgrade from XP to Vista made to buyers of new computers a little prior to the Vista launch.

      But it suggests that anyone buying a low spec computer with Vista may be disappointed with the performance -- or the absence of show-stopping features (depending on the Vista version supplied).

      The case contends that the entry-level version given to these upgraders does not contain some of the trumpeted features of Vista -- doubtless because many of the machines aren't up to running them.

      It's relevant because many of the current computer models at UK retailers are available only with Vista (e.g. PC World).

      Dell, being bigger (a.k.a. not amenable to pressure by Microsoft) is wisely still offering users a choice of XP or Vista.

      From my own and friends' brief plays with Vista on brand new machines, it seemed sluggish -- and not surprisingly given the sheer size of it.
