Just to make a point here, MS could save about 50% packaging by using smaller boxes and not using high-gloss printing on the packages. That in turn could roll over to the person buying the product. It's really just a marketing ploy and that is the way it will maintain. MS will continue to charge more then they need to, to make a good profit and will continue to be hated/despised/resented by so many others because of it.
The point being, as I stated earlier, you have those who really dislike MS and those that support them. It's obvious who you both follow.
Seems to me that you should just agree to disagree, and stop post farming here... But then, that is only my thoughts...
This really should have been in off topic anyway... :/

You mean the same big boxes and glossy packaging that Linux, MacOS, and Solaris use?

I'm actually more against the bandwagon-shouting, here. I'm not Microsoft's biggest supporter, I have my peeves with them, too. I just have a problem with off-handle whining.

more companies sell Microsoft products, companies like HP and Dell who also don't use AMD processors, they sell to the users who don't know much about PC's, and there are so many of those people

The largest consumers, and biggest source of income for MS, aren't end users, but businesses and corporations.

Do HP and DELL still offer an alternate OS? They go back and forth between only offering Windows OS's, and offering an alternate OS if the user chooses.
