Is there a repository of such cases like the "cases in Europe." I would
expect such cases to get much publicity in the Linux forums e.g.
The first such case that I recall, occured in Calif., US involving a
Toshiba notebook. The customer did not agree to the MS EULA and was
able to get a refund from Toshiba (after much arguments).
The other case, I recall was an UK customer (again a notebook) who got a
refund from Dell/UK for not agreeing to the Windows EULA.
