This shows how out of touch the justice system is with the requirements of the users. I agree that some users want to be able to use the computer immediately. I am NOT “some users”.
If the computer doesn’t come with the OS I want, I don’t want it to come with any OS at all, so I can install it myself.
My laptop and my computer both have Linux (my desktop has Linux Mint, my laptop has Ubuntu). Both came with Windows 7 Home Basic when I purchased it, because there was no option for “No Operating System”. If I can save £50 on my machine by not having to install crapware by Microsoft, I’d take it if it were an option.
