Microsoft Reveals Windows
Vista SP1 Will Install XP

By Brian Briggs

Redmond, WA – In response to customer demands Microsoft announced that instead of patching bugs and improving features of Windows Vista in the next service pack release, they would just install XP.

"We're focused on giving the customer what they want, and want they want is to just go back to XP," said Microsoft Development Chief Greg Elston.

Elston said not only will the move improve customer satisfaction with Vista, but will allow the company to focus resources on the next operating system instead of the flailing Vista.  "We can move people off of Vista development now, and move them to Windows 7 development," said Elston. "That should allow us to only delay Windows 7 by thirteen months past its scheduled date instead of the planned eighteen."

Customers have had many complaints about Vista, so it wasn't surprising the response to the move was mostly positive.  "Ever since I install Vista I've wanted to go back to XP," said Trey Sportia. "I'm glad Microsoft has given me an easy downgrade path."

Some customers complained about paying for Vista when all they'll end up with is XP which they had already.  Elston said that "if people read the license agreement they'll see this is perfectly within our rights. Anyway, we're calling it Vista XP, so it is new in a way."

Elston also added that if people complain too much they'll just revert to Windows ME.
