It's now impossible to buy a Linux laptop in the Netherlands. You HAVE to pay for Windows, even though you don't want to use that OS at all.

Seems like we're back to square one. And the worst part is, nobody seems to care. No outcry from the developer community. It's really sad. We don't seem to give a shit about freedom and choice.
