Re: Free Market
Just to clarify a few points from the replies.
I am not anti Microsoft. I am pro choice.
Why would PC's "sit on shelves"? I am NOT advocating PCW should sell computers with Linux pre installed. I am advocating that for a number of consumers with the correct tec skills (like REG readers) you should be able to buy a computer blank and then install the OS of your choice.
If a PC comes from the factory with Windows pre installed (and all the junk that comes with it)there should be an option for the shop to format the drive and knock the price of Windows off the computer. Would take about 5 minutes.
Not saying this is for eveyone just it would be a nice option for those with the skills to do it.
Would you like to install Windows yourself without all that trial rubbish which comes from a pre built PC?
