Submission + - Why you can't buy a naked PC!

ZDOne writes: "Another great piece from ZDNet — this time looking at the issue of naked PCs. ZDNet UK phoned around all the major PC vendors and not one of them would sell a machine without Windows on it! http://news.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/0,1000000091,3928 6228,00.htm.

IT professionals are being forced to adopt Microsoft's operating systems — even if they tell their PC supplier they want a system free of Microsoft software.

ZDNet: I'm wondering whether you supply notebooks without Windows software.

Acer: I'm afraid not, no.

ZDNet:No? Nothing at all?

Acer: Although we can do the refund for the operating system as per the OEM licensing."
