It looks like people that buy a computer with XP installed this holiday season (after October 28th) may just get a nice little bonus from Microsoft. According to this article, Vista will either be a free or very cheap upgrade, depending on the XP version installed on your machine.
For example, those who have Widows XP Professional, XP Tablet PC Edition, and XP x64 Edition would be entitled to the free upgrade. Those using Windows XP Home would be permitted to upgrade to Vista Basic for $49 and Premium for $79. No upgrade price was specified for Media Center Edition.
