So now the windump retailers are resorting to enforcing
a NO WINDOWS REFUND POLICY.
Ebuyer and Amazon.
You can purchase laptop and windump OS, but you cannot get
refund for the OS. You can only get refund for your laptop and windump OS.
SO YOU HAVE TO DO WITHOUT THE LAPTOP IN ORDER TO DO WITHOUT WINDUMP OS!!!!!

EU regulators need to act like the Russian regulars
and force clear refund policy across the board and legislate.
The consumer protection boards are all asleep in UK.
They would shoot down windump CD pirates (like sending to jail
