Kyle (the honorary family member) has embarked on a crusade against the major corporations of evil etc. etc. that:

One thought on “Toshiba/Microsoft/End-User Wars”
Excellent! I have read some stories of people that denied the EULA and had their money refunded. Sadly they are always a very few bunch from all the people that try.
I am looking forward to buying a Dell soon with Linux preinstalled. They are already selling desktops as well as servers with no OS. This is the first time that one of the big players is taking a step in the right direction towards liberating us from Microsoft’s grip lock.
