What can/will be said in defence:

- An open PC is available

- Go buy a computer somewhere else

- We believe Windows to be a good operating system

On  the contrary, what can is considered illegal practice (although it has
no  concrete proof) is that PC's with a blank hard-drives are more  expen-
sive  than  PC's with Windows pre-installed. This suggests that there  are
kick-backs  involved,  but this requires a lawsuit at a level higher  than
that of an individual's.

If you insist, try alt.legal, or better try a newsgroup that is alive such
as  uk.legal.  I recently ignited a big thread there. I asked the  readers
about  if  Microsoft can be blamed for these 1000+ zombies that attack  my
site every day.
