[ale] M$ refund


As Niv Lilian reports at Ynet News, Haifa's Zvi Devir just preferred to run 
Linux rather than the pre-installed Windows on his newly bought Dell 
computer, and didn't want to pay for the unwanted Windows system. Now Devir 
has prevailed, after a fight in Israeli small-claims court, to become the 
first Israeli to obtain a Windows refund (also in Hebrew), winning the $137 
that Windows added to the cost of his machine and escaping the nondisclosure 
agreement that Dell had wanted him to abide by as a condition. Perhaps others 
will follow his lead.
