Microsoft Tax - Refunds for Linux Laptops, Notebooks & PDAs



You might be entitled to a refund for Microsoft Windows and any other related OEM software that may also be included if you have installed Linux, a BSD, BeOS, OS/2, Solaris, Novell NetWare or another computer operating system on a laptop, notebook or PDA, which came preloaded with Microsoft-Windows*. See the Windows Refund.org and MS-Free-PC . There are even laptop manufacturers and resellers which offer machines without any pre-installed operating system.

To make your claim you may use the Microsoft-Windows Removal Certificate available as PDF and OpenOffice SXW file.
