Sony PC owners to get Windows 10 upgrade as early Christmas present

Oh Vaio...

It's always been their achilles heel: They make nicely designed, solidly built (If a tad expensive) kit, then use so many custom Sony Apps, OS customisations, and weird drivers that it's almost not Windows any more.

Any other brand, you'd nuke windows and put a vanilla copy on, but with VAIO's, you'd just end up with a dozen unknown drivers for Sony buttons, memory sticks, phone/PS connectors, and lord knows what else.

Had a fun one a few years ago where you could not unset Google Chrome as the default browser, even if you uninstalled it.
