No to pre-loaded windows in France

Channel Register reports a french man was delivered an Acer laptop with pre-loaded windows and refused to pay for that OS. Now he won the lawsuit in French court. Yesterday I was checking upp Dell.se to look for pre-loaded Linux (Ubuntu) as they offer it in US for their customers. No Linux and I had to choose either Windows XP or Windows vista. When will their be a lawsuit for this in Sweden?

  1. I have long been angered by the fact we are forced to buy an OS when we buy hardware… I can’t wait for a lawsuit like the French one to be filed in the US…

    Viva la Freedom!!!

    Thanks,
