£20 says they move away from Windows to a BSD.
No idea they were still selling it!! 95 is long dead, which is the min requirement for using a licensed Vista upgrade.

When I went to America earlier this year, my tetris kept crashing and booting me into Windows 3.1 on the inbuilt entertainment system.
