Windows Microsoft has been very protective over its OEM pricing, and while various figures float around the web, the company has never really confirmed or denied any of them.

Not to mention Windows (and/or OS X) is a true value for the person who wants a computer that works without having to recompile their kernel to enable an Nvidia driver, or dick around with software updates that break working configurations (wireless on ubuntu).

Which pretty much covers 98.99% of the computing public.
