I guess everybody notices that, when you buy a new PC from one of those big manufacturers (e.g., Dell), they will pre-install Windows on your machine. So when you get your PC, you just hook it up, turn it on, and click on the small agree button on the screen and start to surf the net.

But next time, you may wanna consider whether you really wanna click on that little "agree" button, if you wanna get a few hundred bucks (HK dollars I am saying) back.

According to this article, someone bought a new PC from Dell, and he clicked the box that said "on" on the Windows licence agreement. After that, he wrote a letter to Dell asking for his refund for the unused copy of Windows, since he decided to put Linux on it himself anyway (which is free, btw).

Without questions asked, that guy got a refund for 55.23 euros back!

So, are you sure you wanna use Windows?
