Cnn is reporting http://www.cnn.com/2006/TECH/ptech/10/25/vista.coupon.ap/index.html that buyers of certain systems from HP,Dell & Gateway during the holiday season will get coupons for free Vista from Microsoft . The Vista coupon will match the type of Windows you buy so if say getting a media center edition XP you will later get the media center edition of Vista. You may have pay for shipping and handling depending on the vendor. This is cool because I have been wanting a small form factor machine that has better then integrated graphics for my nice 19" NEC monitor but have been holding off just because Vista was coming. Anyways thought this was interesting news.
