Where in the heck did you get the idea that Windows was free with most
computers? Windows is not free, it has never been free and it will never be
free. It may be INCLUDED with most computers, but I promise you pay for it.
The average price of a computer running WindowsXP Home is $89 higher than
the same exact computer running any flavor of *nix. The average price of a
computer running WindowsXP Professional is $179 higher than the same exact
computer running any flavor of *nix. Now how is that freaking free?

The idea that just because something is free you shouldn't be allowed
to complain about its quality is nonsense. Windows comes free with a
lot of PCs but that doesnt' mean it's beyond reproach. I get free junk mail.
