Fine print

I don't get this new Microsoft ad:

So Mac's are too expensive. Well, they are really, really good machines, and worth it, but let's accept this for the moment. So you want to save some cash, and buy a cheap computer. I get that. Doesn't it make you mad, then, that you have to pay for Windows on top of that hardware cost--the hardware you're choosing because of cost, and not so much features? And then anti-virus software? Oh, and Office? I'm probably forgetting other things, I've been using a Mac for long enough that I forget some things about life with PCs.

Wouldn't it make more sense, if you're really caring about cost, to go with Linux, and get all this for free? I mean if we're talking cost here, cause that's what this is about, right?
