Here's a reason why Dell should ship a system without Windows: I already own a license for Windows from an old laptop which died.
But I have to pay Windows tax again or spend hours on the phone for $52, no thanks.
Here's a idea: someone in China or India should setup a company where they do the negotiating on your behalf. They get to keep 30% of the refund, but you don't have to monkey around with it. Basically outsource it to someone who's willing to work for that rate. I'm certainly not--I have a business to fun.
