If someone has hard data on how many computers sold in the EU are
bundled with MS Windows, lobbying the DG for Competition
<> might be the way to
go. I am afraid there's virtually nil chance to get a general ban on
bundling software with hardware, but there is a possibility that
Microsoft may be forbidden to bundle their OS with hardware due to
their de facto monopoly.
