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. At the Jefferies Annual Technology Conference, however, Charles Songhurst, general manager of Corporate Strategy, revealed some of the pricing details for OEMs.

It should also be noted that the trialware installed on Windows PCs brings down the OEM license cost.

A lot of anti-virus companies make deals with OEMs whereby they get a cut of any future subscription fees that the customer purchases.

Yea I hate uninstalling all the junk but it does bring the cost down.
