It came pre installed. Microsoft is pushing Win7 so there are fewer and fewer netbooks with XP. It has a ton of ram by the way.

I suspected it might have, I'd format the bugger and get XP on it, Microsoft are delusional about running W7 on netbooks.

If I was setting up a full spec modern PC I'd definitely go with Windows 7, I find it genuinely pleasant to use and it takes better advantage of multi-core CPUs/GPUs and large amounts of RAM, not to mention SSD drives, my current PC "feels" so much quicker than my last XP machine simply because everything loads almost instantly.

I resisted Windows 7 for quite a while but ended up slapping my forehead when I found that a load of weird quirky issues I'd had on XP since forever just vanished, also the CPU overhead for the new features is pretty insignificant on any processor made in the last two or three years.

*edit*

Windows 8 can go screw itself though :p
