Let 'em eat that cost for as long as they wish. We, the customers, don't have to pay it. That's what matters. If Dell wants to subsidize Microsoft, that's their choice and their business. But wait, you say! Dell will simply hike the price of the hardware to pass that cost onto us anyway. Well, if they do that, we have the choice to go somewhere else...including the little guy. You want to stick w/ purchasing Dell, then? OK, that, too, is a choice, and you're free to do it.
