You're not alone in not liking Vista, but the problem is that Microsoft has now forbidden PC builders and retailers from installing any edition of XP (including the Media Center Edition). They are only allowed to install Vista or sell boxed versions of Vista. XP is now 'dead' as far as retailers are concerned. So unless you already have a PC with XP installed, or an old retail XP CD, returning to XP is not an option.
XP is available to OEMs and System Builders up until June next year. After that, unless the date is changed again, Vista will be the only option.
Most branded computer products have always come with the latest version of Windows regardless of how good/bad it is, some (such as Dell) still give you an option to use XP or Vista.
