Re: Can you spell lawsuit?

Greatest respect etc, but quite a few people on here seem to be forgetting that people in the real world don't choose to buy Windows. People in the real world choose to buy a PC/laptop etc, and MS's sweetheart deals with the major system vendors and major retailers ensure that it's a lot easier to buy a consumer box with Windows than it is to buy one without Windows.

End users are no longer important MS customers (at least wrt OS sales). System builders are the OS customers that matter, and it's been that way for years.

Office etc is a slightly different story.
