One point I forgot to make, while MS do not "force" the purchase of their operating systems (the GWX fiasco is the closest I can recall), ever so many other computer companies have "forced" the purchase of their operating systems, yet seem to get a free pass while doing so. Amiga, Atari, and Apple come immediately to mind without getting past the first letter of the sodding alphabet! Never once have I ever heard the owner of a PDP-11 pissing and moaning about being "forced" to purchase it with a proprietary OS. A chap I invited to celebrate my 23,742th day on Earth has had his for nearly 50 years, so I might ask him why! FFS!
