Internet Explorer Groklaw has an article arguing that Microsoft has not yet complied with the DOJ order that users must be able to remove Internet Explorer from Windows. "So he explained the blue and white screens of death, what a dual boot startup is, commingling code, and then tying or bundling, specifically tying Internet Explorer with the operating system. He explained how you can't use Add/Remove to get IE or Media Player off your hard drive, but that you can use SPAD, 'set program access and defaults', to choose Firefox or another browser as your default browser instead of IE. However, IE remains on your hard drive."

No option to buy the Dell laptop without O.S.

Here's a direct link: http://linux.dell.com/desktops.shtml
From there you can order Dell desktops with FreeDOS or Linux and notebooks with FreeDOS. The ones that come with FreeDOS are actually without an OS, you need to install FreeDOS yourself, it is provided but not installed.
