Freedom To Choose Operating System And Protection of Our Consumer Rights sign now

Hello everybody. I am a strong supporter of Open Source and Linux and consumer rights. I really get sad when i see ourselves being forced to buy a computer with an Operating System which we might not want, specially in all of this so called free and democratic world. This feeling has grown with time to a level of frustration. And now that i am planning to buy a new laptop, its pushing me really hard inside my brain. So i have planned to file a case in consumer court regarding the same.

I have read about cases of "W....S Tax Refund". I feel they were primarily motivated by feelings against one company, rather than for protection of consumer rights and freedom of choice.


I plan to file a case in Indian Consumer Court (well known for protecting consumer rights here in India) based on following points (will grow with suggestions):

1. Forcing a product by not providing any other choice directly violates "Right to Choose", one of fundamental consumer right.

2. An OEM can't force an OS which is not directly produced by it (e.g. i can't challenge Apple as they produce both hardware and software, and sell the product as one single entity. While an OEM simple bundles OS from 3rd party with its own hardware.)

3. Not planning to highlight issue of monopoly in OS business, as i think that emphasizing this point really takes away the focus from the consumer rights issue.

Please help me fight for the cause by signing the petition if you believe in it. I plan to use the support generated here in court.

Please help spread the Petition & the cause.

Note : The case will not be against any software company (do i even need to name it !). The basic motive here is protection of consumer rights and freedom to choose.
