    I'm sure there are plenty of you who have installed Vista in dual-boot with XP as I have. Well, Vista comes with that new "fancy" boot prompt. But I really find amusing that new attitude that M$ is assuming. I remember that I also had Win98 and XP in dual-boot a few years ago, and the boot prompt clearly stated "Windows XP" and "Windows 98". Not "Previous version of Windows". o_O It's like you have two sons, and you call younger by his name and older "hey you, other kid". Don't you think so? M$ - no good parent :)

    EDIT: BTW, this is a question also. Maybe this is only with my system. Or do you all have "Previous version of Windows" instead of XP on boot prompt?

    Yeah, it has to do with the new bootloader which I guess can't access or directly boot XP.
