It's called "bundling", and yes we would be better off if every machine wasn't shipped with an OS. If you've already got an OS license you can use on the new machine, you're still stuck paying an estimated $50+ more for an OS license you didn't need. And if you're using Linux, then you're paying for something you don't even want. There's no reason why machines can't come with or without an OS. Seriously - laptop vendors give you a choice of memory sizes, hard drives, discrete graphics options, often different LCD resolution options - why do you have a problem with an OS option? Why can't there be a "No thank you, I'll supply my own" checkbox under OS on the ordering page just like there's always an option to upgrade to a higher level of Windows?
