I'm off to Change.org
It's time that everyone should be writing to their MPs and explaining in (very) simple terms how this behaviour is unacceptable. Microsoft should not be allowed to have a pre-paid installation on non-Microsoft branded computers. When booting up a new device give a choice of buying Windows for £100 or Linux for £0. It would not be so bad if you could actually get a refund of the Windows Tax. How the hell have they got away with this so long?
In the meantime I'm truly sorry for those of you who will have to support this odious OS.
