both of you are right, there are laptops sold without pre-installed M$.
I saw one HP with Mandrake (but still love IBM though they dont support
linux users here in taiwan d4mn!).  But that wasnt the point. 

It isnt because there are no hardware with no built in M$ or no laptop
with a sticker saying built for wndwz xp, rather you have to buy it in
case somebody gives you a file or you need to install a M$ only tool/app
or you need to pay a 3D game or my wife/kid might crave for a new toy
that has no linux drivers yet or video editing (i really love mac movie
maker).  Its like buying a full course meal when you only want the
drinks - and your not even sure you'll like it.

i dont often use windows and  i dont even like using it, but I always
end up paying for it in case I MIGHT NEED IT.  when will we get rid of
this "MIGHT NEED IT" insecurity?
