I bought a Netbook from Amazon.com. When I received it the OEM OS was
Windows XP Home.  I did not accept the EULA and emailed Amazon informing
them of this and requesting a refund for the software; per the instruction
in the EULA. The first response was a request to return the Netbook . . .
(A DUH!) I emailed them with a direct reference to the EULA text that states
the refund is to be issued by the vendor that sold the computer to you.
Within an hour I received an email notifying  me of the credit to my Visa
account for $75.  YEA!!!!

I'm sorry for the problem you had with this software and I regret the
manufacturer wasn't to be of much help.

I've requested a refund of $75.00 for the software Windows XP Home to your
Visa card. You'll see the credit in the next 2 to 3 business days.

Once the refund is complete, you'll see the refund at the bottom of the
order page: ?

I am running eeebuntu on the ASUS 1000HE and it is great. I added RAM (2GB)
turned off unused services and uninstalled all the software packages I don?t

My Netbook is running lean and mean . . . battery life is excellent . . .
speed for all the task is much faster that Window 7 on my Acer Aspire laptop
(3GB ram) etc?

*WoooooHoooooo !!!!!!!!!!!*
