The statement says that all new computers must have the Windows-only
lock.  What about upgrades?  If I buy a computer from a Linux dealer
and retrofit Windows 8, where do I stand?

I am staying with XP. The dealers still prefer XP over Win7, when
they have a choice.  When I can no longer use that, Windows goes out the

Registered Linux user.
