Eli, why pay for an OS when you don't use it. Everyone has the right to
choose whatever OS he wants, be it windows XP, linux, windows server 2003 or
even for the sake of the argument buy a new laptop to use it for parts.

I will elaborate further, even the seller can earn more from this. Lets say
he sells separately laptop and OS separately. He can earn more from selling
the OS separately according to the customer choice. This is a win-win
situation.
