Re:It IS a bundle

The Windows EULA<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... does NOT say that you can get a refund for JUST the Windows operating system

Dead wrong. What the EULA says is this:

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT INSTALL, COPY, OR USE THE SOFTWARE; YOU MAY RETURN IT TO YOUR PLACE OF PURCHASE FOR A FULL REFUND, IF APPLICABLE.

"IT" clearly refers to "THE SOFTWARE" in this sentence.

Dell's "terms of sale"... say that the operating system is bundled software and may only be refused/returned if the entire system is returned.

Bullshit. Did you make even the slightest effort to know what you were saying?

<a href="http://www.dell.com/terms" title="dell.com">http://www.dell.com/terms</a dell.com> says this:
"All software is provided subject to the license agreement that is part of the software package and you agree that you will be bound by such license agreement."

They'd also be totally in the right to say that there is no purchase price for Windows because they provided it to you free as an incentive to purchase their system

Except for the fact that this isn't what they say when you buy the system. What their website says is Windows is "Included in Price."

I say, good for you, Serge!
