then happen is that the consumer gets fed up with the lemon they
have purchased, and will then give Microsoft even more money to
"upgrade" to a non-crippled version of Windows 7 - and in this case
it is an even better deal for Microsoft because they certainly will
charge the end user a higher price than they would have charged the
netbook OEM in the first place, and they don't have to share any of
this money with the OEM."
