RE[7]: I did my homework

You keep mentioning this foreign example as though it's proof that the situation is equal everywhere, but it is not. The few niche vendors who specialise in linux can charge more than their hardware is worth because big venders with scales of economy hardly ever bother selling linux or no-OS machines.

I understand you are tired of listening to us whine about paying the ms tax, but you should still recognise that it is a legitimate complaint and isn't something we're just making up.
