Why does HP come up with a MS Windows OS, and charge it's customers for it when they don't even want to buy Widnows.
And then my laptop doesn't contain a Licence key, so recovery is another issue. We have to keep that partition. If we loose that we loose Wndows, or else it keep occupying GBs of our hard drive and a physical partition.
Why doesn't HP just install a free Linux, and reduce the amount charged for windows from it's product.
It will be a bit cheaper for users and will give them freedom to choose their own OS.

- Firstly; HP sells many machines with FreeDOS.
- Secondary; you can create a Recovery set yourself and keep it in a safe place. It contains Operating system and drivers which allow you to bring your machine back the Fatory settings status.
- Thirdly: the Windows key is in the BIOS of your machine. You won't loose the key.
