Windows XP available on HP Mini Note by mid-May


That HP Mini Note? Yeah, it’ll be available with Windows XP, the preferred Windows OS of, oh, I don’t know, pretty much everyone I’ve spoken with.

Some sleuthing by Laptop mag turned up the goods, discovering that XP will be available as a pre-configured option by mid-May. That’s just one month from now, and a few weeks after the Vista and Linux models launch.

Remember the Google gag where “miserable failure” linked to George W. Bush’s bio? Might want to amended that so Vista shows up instead. I’ve never seen such vitriol directed at an OS.
