Windows XP N isn’t exactly burning up the boards

Posted by David Hunter at 5:13 AM ET.

(Via WinInsider) Windows XP N Stands for ‘No Sales’ :

A senior Microsoft official in the United Kingdom confirmed this week that no computer manufacturers took up the option to install Windows XP N, the operating system Microsoft created in response to the European Commission decision against it.

Windows XP N is a version of Windows that is unbundled from Windows Media Player. The EC decision prohibited Microsoft from charging more for the stripped-down operating system — Microsoft listed the product for the same price as the full version of Windows XP.

I believe we can file this one under “no brainer.”
