You were told wrong. Compaqs are PCs and are shipped with Windows installed...Windows XP at the moment.

Perhaps whoever told you that got confused about Compaqs not shipping with restore/recovery disks. Compaqs were among the first to do that but now all the major computer manufacturers are doing it.

Compaqs (and others) do come with software to make your own recovery disks. I recommend making those disks as soon as the computer is up and running. It requires 6 blank CDs or one blank DVD.
