I certainly wouldn't be deterred

from buying something just because an assistant got the information twisted round his neck.

If Windows XP is unstable it's because there's something wrong with the software/hardware setup, and it can almost always be resolved. I certainly wouldn't dream of buying a new machine with any other operating system on it, and you'll be hard pressed to find one. Manufacturers install WinXP on all new machines for one simple reason - it's better, and more stable than any other operating system on the consumer market.

Why you should say "needless to say we never purchased from their." beats me, and I wonder where you did purchase from? Wherever it was, I bet the machine had Windows XP installed.
