Microsoft bound to refund unused licenses

This is news to me. Earlier I was bashing the manufacturers for not providing a choice of OS and charging for Windows by default.
Somehow I came across this article on slashdot. By law people who dont use Windows on new PCs, can get refund for the license for not using it. The manufacturer gaurantees it. But this is if you *never* used Windows on the new PC. So maybe install Linux at first itself. Even if you want to use Windows, if you already have a license, you can get the refund and use ur own copy.

Comments:
yep, thanks for this up2date info!
 
Wow! that's good :) Looks like we finally have a choice between the OS we want to use... That sure makes me feel like a grownup :D
 
yep. Its infact the PC manufacturers have "grownup" ;) albiet its still subtle and everybody wants to immediately turn on the compauter as soon as buy it and the default windows shows up and once u accept the license initally u cannot reclaim. A choice while purchase wud have been nice.
 
I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

You have made some really good points there. I looked on
the internet to learn more about the issue and found most individuals will go along
with your views on this site.
