Um, no. If there is no OS, there is no drivers. And there is no software support. How can it be a "support nightmare" if there is no software support included? Windows itself is a support nightmare. The computer OEM saves from having to provide that support if they sell the machine without an OS.

It would come with hardware warranty only, and no software support. Include a bootable hardware diagnostic CD. If it runs and finds no problems, then the hardware is good. If it finds a failed component, then the hardware is bad, send it in for replacement. Very simple and straightforward.

Not going to happen....

At least you can still use your windows license inside a VM when needed.

Linux simply is not designed for mass consumption, Windows is. Lindows/Linspire never took off precisely because it's not Windows.

The market of people who want Ubuntu pre-installed on laptops is smaller than those who want a pair of GTX690 in SLI.

I'm sorry, I must have missed the section where you provided the evidence for your trolling comment....

You're going back a thousand years there, aren't you? I'm sure a preexisting software monopoly has absolutely nothing to do with it.
