Microsoft Windows Tax Scam

This is a series of case studies illustrating the difficulty one has purchasing a PC in the UK without being forced to pay a "Microsoft Windows Tax" for preinstalled versions of MS Windows that we never actually use. We use Linux on all our PC's and have done so for several years. Therefore we do not need, nor should we be forced to pay for any Microsoft software licenses. These studies are being documented and gathered in order to submit a formal complaint to the UK Office of Fair Trading and the EU Commission, in the hope these regulatory bodies will finally put an end to this blatantly uncompetitive practice and chronic abuse of the market.
