Refunding the Windows Tax

A lot of Linux users hate the fact that most PC computer vendors only offer computers with MS Windows installed. They never plan on using Windows, and it sucks to pay $50-200 for something you don’t need or want (affectionately known as the “Windows tax”). A major reason for this is the horrendous Windows EULA (you know you don’t own that copy of Windows you paid for, right?). Fortunately for them, the Windows EULA specifically states that if you do not agree to its terms and conditions, you are eligible for a refund. It seems as though some users are taking advantage of this [via].
