Worldwide Campaign: "My University offers me my Microsoft Windows ® License"


Many universities and engineering schools provide their students with a free Microsoft Windows ® license through a partner program with Microsoft. Yet, when students buy a new computer, they also pay for another (OEM) Microsoft Windows ® license included in the computer price. Today, the French speaking Libre Software Users' Association (AFUL) launches a worldwide campaign My University offers me my Microsoft Windows ® License to encourage students to request a refund from good computer manufacturers (those who willingly offer such a refund). By claiming their refund, the students will help restoring a healthy economic competition among operating systems, says AFUL.
