You are confusing the issue. The PC you might buy bundled with Windows is NOT an embedded OS device. So don't compare this to such things as cars. Note too that this has nothing to do with how much you might get back but rather make vendors and customers aware of the so called "Microsoft Tax". It also gives valuable advice in the proceeding if you so desire; it is your legal right. Truth be known, vendors and Microsoft don't want the masses requesting refunds. They would have to rethink how to monopolize.
