I just bought a new laptop and, I usually just wipe Windows off and install Linux but, a long time ago, I read about being able to get a refund for Windows if I refuse the EULA or something like that. Based on what I read, Microsoft could either give me the refund or tell me to return the laptop upon not accepting the EULA.
I've just got an Asus laptop which of course came with Winblows 7 Premium. Is there anyone lucky enough who managed to get a refund from Asus or Microsoft? I got a refund from Dell without a problem. But Asus or MS... Anyone even tried? In Australia Asus only have a warranty department, so it's pointless talking to them, they don't know or can't anything.
