However, every time I look at Dell's (for example) computers that are preloaded with Linux, one question that always pops into my head is "Why should I buy a PC preloaded with Linux?". They are more expensive after all, and its not hard to just reformat the PC with Linux. I hate paying the Microsoft Tax as any other user, but if paying that "tax" allows companies to bundle products that I will never use with my PC to reduce my price why wouldn't I just buy a Windows loaded PC and reformat?
