There are more and more places where you can get a machine with no OS preinstalled. If you're determined to use an older or different OS than the retailers prescribe then fortunately it's getting easier to do so. The lack of OS alternatives probably won't ruffle the feathers of most customers out there. The tech-savvy among us will surely be able to find ways to get the system we want regardless of the mainstream retailers...although their prices are tempting. ;)
