Where is consumer choice?

Hands up to all those consumers who bought a new laptop or home computer with Microsoft Windows Installed! Did we actually pay thousands for a machine that we own outright and what is this nonsense, that we must have Windows Digitally Signed? Did Microsoft imagine that they were the Owners of our computers and did they even ask us first, if we wanted to allow their software on our computers at all? Where is consumer choice? And I think as a consumer, Microsoft should pay every computer owner/buyer for the right to have their software running on our machines. After all, we are #promoting their arbitary software for their sole benefit! Time for the Rules to Change, we will have Linux and Ubuntu to look forward to as an operating system and finally, we can have more choice in how we use and operate our investment.
