Journal: Unbundling Windows from a Notebook?

Journal by drolli

I know, the question is asked from time to time, thats partially because the situation really changes, so i ask it again. I want to buy a subnotebook. Some of the most interesting candidates (e.g. Sony P-Series) are sold bundled with Windows, which i am not interested in buying at all (the last personally bought MS product was Windows 3.1, included in OS/2 2.1).

So what is the current strategy about refusing EULA, annoying the support etc? How did it/does it work out? The Reports on the net vary strongly. I am less interested in how the world should be, how it from a philosophy of law perspective should be or how the theoretical legal situation is. I am interested in what really worked, how much time it took and how annoying it was.

When some people discover the truth, they just can't understand why everybody isn't eager to hear it.

Working...
