"The Windows EULA says you can get a refund if you don't agree to its terms. It does NOT say that you can get a refund for JUST the Windows operating system."
The Windows EULA is just that, a *Windows* EULA. It cannot apply to anything other than the software it licenses.
"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."
Then they'd have to explain how its an *incentive* when I specifically requested a system without an OS. The whole "free/incentive/bundled software" argument falls flat unless there is an equvilent option without the bundled software.
