I'd like to see somebody make a decent case using UCC Article

As would I, unfortunately anyone wealthy enough to take that on is unlikely to consider it worth the effort in terms of opportunity cost. (i.e. If you can afford the legal fees you can also afford to completely write off the laptop and move on with your life because that's even cheaper and easier.)

No, go fuck yourself. Give me control over my updates/drivers inside the OS and don't make me sign up for your fucking spam in order to have a WORKING operating system.

The linked page was for hardware developers to submit their drivers to Microsoft so that they can be included in updates.

But I'm sure you realized that...

Yes, because not knowing how to use Windows is a great bet for getting a job in a business environment.

Also, VMs are hard.

On one hand I have 20 years of linux experience. On the other hand it was 15 years before that experience actually paid off in my professional life.

Loving linux is great and all, but you're useless to me if you only know one platform.

Yeah, and understand that when the PM says "well, if we all work 24x7 we'll be ontime" then PM is an idiot and should be told that.

Right idea, wrong tactic.

Instead of going head to head, it's a great place to be passive aggressive and start asking how you will be compensated for the extra hours and how they would like you to handle time off for job interviews.

Related to the first one:

Learn that when you disagree with someone it might be because you don't understand yet, you can change reactions you get from people if you say
"I don't understand." instead of "I disagree."

Similarly, instead of "That's stupid." try "That doesn't sound right to me, can you explain?"
