In fact this machine, for the sake of since I work on people's computers, boots by default to Windows 7 but offers XP Media Center (Fancy XP Pro), Vista, and OS X as well.

An interesting article about it is up at AnandTech :

IMO the third point is the most interesting, considering Larrabee's consumer release was recently canned. Given the trial is in 9 months it will be interesting to see how it pans out.
